    I am considering keeping button quail as pets and doing a little research beforehand.
    I know that button quail do not like to be alone. Would it be appropriate to house two males together as pets (no females around)? I would like two quail, but wouldn't be ready for any babies. What is the best solution?
    Thank you!

    I do it every time I have extra males that don't sell. If you have a dominant male, he'll feather pick the other one though.

    I'm in New Hampshire. I would love them if you are in my neck of the woods- but few people are! :)
