    [​IMG] This is the place to talk and post pics of your Button Quail! [​IMG]
    I have 11 button eggs in the brooder, so I would like to see everyones cages, chicks, birds, and brooders! [​IMG]
    This is my first button hatch, so I am VERY excited! If anyone have some info that is not in the stickies, feel free to tell or PM me! [​IMG]
    The colors that are included in the eggs are, Silvers, Silver Pearls, Double Factor Blue Faced Cinnamon, and Cinnamon Red Breasted!! Is it true that all pearls are Females? I thought I read that somewhere..........
    If you have the colors above PLEASE post pics of them (I [​IMG] seeing pics of quail!).
    I will post the pics of the eggs I got soon! [​IMG]

    Quote:DON'T believe everything you read on Ebay...there are so many names for the colors of Chinese Blue Breasted Quail that are NOT real. Shoot i bought eggs knowing that the folks who were selling them were just calling them what they felt like calling them...
