    What part of Oregon are you in. I am getting ready to put 100 buttons in the bator. I may end up with some curly ones.

    The portland area. I'm very excited to have found some hope. I have been told on other forums that this trait is merely abused birds and that just is not true. Thank you for your replies!

    I will have more eggs in May I have a waiting list and silly birds are on stike. My super curly gal is growing feathers back the crazy white guy pulled them out the pain. She is going to go in with a blue face guy in a couple weeks
    My red breast pair keep hiding their eggs I think they want to sit again silly things I need those eggs
    Cinnamon pair layed once this week
    Other two pairs are laying good thank goodness. They are that stunning golden pearl for BQH the one with female coloring he has a golden pearl mate. And his son is in with a red breast.

    me too. Are they still hardy when they are curly, or do they need more sheltered housing?

    They are still hardy you just have to watch picking from others
    I had my beautiful golden pearl gal in with a white male and he picked her now I am waiting for her feathers to grow back
    I keep my buttons only in pairs they do better that way
