    Hey everyone! So I hatched some Cots this year but sadly had to give them all away. Now I'm wondering if anyone in Chicago or in the Chicago area sells Cots or Buttons. I'm looking for chicks or very young adults, or for custom amounts of eggs (ie not sold by the dozen) and for them to be available year-round if possible. For Cots, I'm looking for regular, Silver, or Jumbo, and for buttons regular or color variety, or white. Thank you so much in advance!

    Also as far as keeping one as a pet, is Coturnix or Button better? I would be keeping females only, these are for the most part indoors but I want a quail I would be able to hold. I had a problem with the Coturnixes last time, whenever I needed to pick them up to clean the cage they would kick me... Anyways, please answer these questions and thank you very much!
