    I've never heard of one.

    The buttons in the 55 came from quaillady, so I'm pretty sure they are small. [​IMG] At least the ones I've hatched from her are.

    Joe, I think it's spelled cbbq. [​IMG]

    I now know what cbbq means, thanks to Alex.

    Those just look like very large cbbq to me. I would have said they were coturnix, if I couldn't see their feet. In a former life, I raised fish, so I do know basic sizes of aquariums, and since when they are filled with water, fish can occupy all 3 dimensions of any aquarium, a 55 gal is better than a 30 gal, but they both can sit on the same foot print (FLOOR SPACE)....one is just taller than the other.

    Anyhoo....just looks like a 30 tall, with some big cbbq quail in it to me....I'm just saying [​IMG]

    Maybe I just have some extra tiny cbbq's. It's hard to gauge scale from pics sometimes, but those look large to me.....Nothing wrong with large!

    cbbq=Chinese blue breasted quail. The new term for "Button" quail. Yes people actually ponder such things. Go figure!

    I know cbbq stands for buttons, but I have to go with Ted. When I read that, I think "coturnix BBQ".

    Never confuse coturnix coturnix anything with cbbq. They are totally different.....even though they conform to coturnix standard. You will get your head told a mess...even though they are coturnix standard.
    coturnix=QUAIL. Old world quail, but quail none the less.
