    I was at the bird show today to get feed for my parrots and I saw these little guys. I have bob whites and Pharaoh Quail and told myself that was all I was going to have. I have never seen these button quail in person and when I saw them I had to have them.

    They are still in their travel cage. I will move them tomorrow morning after they settle down some.

    I like the cream colored one. I know some bird breeders keep them in the bottoms of cages to clean up spilled feed.
