    I want to get some button quail and know that i have to keep them in side and i want to keep them in a fish tank but was wondering what size tank i should keep a pair of them in also whats a good bedding for them. I would love to see some pics of your set up and also if you have a pair for sale and willing to ship them i would love to take them off your hands

I think I am getting cedar from my feed store by accident so I have to find different bedding. Check my byc page for pics of their setup. Relatively new to them myself buuuut I think I am doing a good job... Getting eggs from them!!! You need a real big enclosure for them to go broody I hear tho.. PM me if you want. [​IMG]
