    I am sooooo happy right now [​IMG]

    i went to go look in the aviary as i always do i like watching the buttons run around.... and as i was watching them i saw my silver male mate with not one but 2 hens!! [​IMG]

    That means i am going to be getting my first egg soon! [​IMG]

    My buttons are 8 weeks old will be 9 weeks old this up coming Sunday.

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Good for you! Have you ever seen the really old Star Trek show called the Trouble with Tribbles? I've always thought of Button Quail as being like the Tribbles. Or sort of like Gremlins. Dont feed them after midnight. They multiply just by adding water. Dozens and Dozens, they are so prolific! You are going to have alot of eggs! I dont have any right now, but I did once!
    How fun for you!
    I am going get some more too! I think I will get some soon, you make it sound fun again! Like Tribbles!
