    I needed some back up for the girls so I went shopping this past weekend and picked up 10 more coturnix and couldn't help but to get my daughter her buttons.

    Her buttons ( your seeing them before she does [​IMG] )

    I have been keeping mine in pairs. They are so cute...congrats on adopting some. I do have a couple boy pairs myself since I was low on girls. [​IMG] I think if they are raised together or familiar enough you will be okay, but do keep a very close eye on them for a while. My males actually feed and preen one another, but if a lady ever showed up there would be an epic battle. Goofy birds. Anyhow -- I'd say if possible, I would grab a lady for each so they can be their happiest!
