    Just been to check on the birds and noticed these eggs I have Chinese painted, californian quail and some budgies in the same enclosure and I'm struggling to tell what type of eggs these are

    They're Chinese painted. Budgies have all white eggs and California valley have rather large spots on them.

    If there is a dark, sheltered, quiet corner in the aviary, buttons are actually quite likely to hatch their own chicks - mine do every year. You'd probably need to remove the Californians though, or they might hurt the chicks. But I agree they are button eggs.
