    Fudgie Hatching Queen - Got Fudge?

    My buttons made the most beautiful sound last night and I could not believe it. I am so glad that we bought these little guys and gals. Such sweet music from such a tiny creature!

    Quote:They were BOTH doing it....The male did the first sound then the female answered back it is the sweetest coolest sound I have ever heard. I want a hundred of them!

    These came from AK_button_mama Rebecca's quail eggs. And your courtnix is doing great too. I just need a man for those 4 females I have! We bought the courtnix and the buttons from the FFA kids.

    You like that COCOA HUT? It used to house our hermit crabs but i figured it gives them a little place to call their own. They like to sit on top really
