    Oh no!! I was really hoping they would hold off on laying! I don't need any more buttons (I have 16 already!). I don't know if it was layed yesterday or today, since I didn't pay much attention to them yesterday. But I went to fill their waterers this morning and there it was, getting kicked all over the place by freaking-out button quail!!

    So these guys are evidently going to be getting some boiled eggs for a snack now! [​IMG]

    Sorry, the pic is pretty bad [​IMG] Oh, and that's a nickel [​IMG]

    Don't you think that 16 is enough?? [​IMG]

    They will be going outside when it gets warmer, so then I could probably have some more. That way maybe I'll get some more girls, since I think I'm pretty boy heavy right now!

    You're crazy! [​IMG] I'll have to eventually to make sure they are fertile, maybe I'll wait till it is warmer? [​IMG] Too many stinky babies inside now as it is!
