Thank you so much quailladyoffortmyers you have an awesome site for button information. This is my second year with buttons the first didn't go so well as I was misled into believing I could just let them out and they would stay around... I'm working on learning all the colors so hopfully I can quit bugging you guys soon :p I appreciate all your help. Is it possible to get buttons to breed true? would a male blue face and a female blueface make blue face babies?

One of my little guys has curled toes. I never noticed until I was doing my 1 on 1 with them last night. Is there anything that can be done for this or is it permanent? also is it a genetic issue or could it be from not having proper humidity during the hatch?
I love all of those gorgeous button pictures. I never knew there were so many varieties and those are only the buttons
Is it possible to buy a book that includes all the different breeds and types of quail? That would be really useful to have around and would be a really cool read too
Thanks!! Will definitely have to see if I can find that book then
Will keep my hopes up that someone publishes a decent Coturnix book soon. Anyone want to take up the challenge?
