    ALRIGHT well i noticed that no one had started a thread on button quails so i thought i would start one. go ahead and post pictures or stuff about your cute as a button quails.




    i love how when my indoor rooster crows the quails try to mimic him and now there call has changed.


    i had got 7 to hatch out of my 12 on my first try. there all grown up now. i ended up with 1 girl. im goin to try to hatch her eggs out for some more girls. shes a precious tuxedo. here are some old hatchin photos.

    I have a single pair that I got from a breeder in April of this year. I did hatch out 7 chicks in May in an incubator and do have some photos I can post later (after I figure it out). I sold all the chicks, 4 males/roos and 3 female/hens to another breeder and kept the pair, they just keep laying more eggs! I saved a few but most I just toss. I just can not make myself cook them even to fed back to the buttons.
    I hope to incubate some in the spring.

    I've got some pictures of my birds. It's crazy how fast they grow up! I got mine when they were three weeks old, and i think the tuxedos were a little younger.
    Here's Joan and Pearl on their first day home.

    And his mate Violet, who used to be Shy Violet but that attitude has changed DRASTICALLY with age!

    And Joan, the most photogenic quail ever, who can literally not take a bad picture.

    Seriously, the camera loves this bird.

    I also have video of Little Buzz making some noise. She was the noisiest chick! If she hadn't started laying so early i'd have thought she was a male.
