I put away my incubator already, but my button Mamas had other ideas. I just had 2 of my pairs hatch out 6 babies each yesterday from setting their own eggs. Who says buttons don't go broody? I'm so happy to have little baby buttons with a Momma to raise them. I always feel bad raising them in a brooder. I think the secret to getting your button quail to set their own eggs is leave them alone. They are very shy little creatures and it takes a lot to make them feel safe. I make sure that each pair has at least one nest box in their own enclosure, and lots of cover to hide in. I change their water & feed as infrequently as possible so as not to disturb them and I've had about 6 hatches this year from broody hens. I probably would have had more, but I remove their eggs usually.
