    My son who is almost 10 was trying to show his quail to his little cousin that was visiting and she wanted to touch one so he opened the door and his only male flew out. GONE! That quick. He tried to find it but couldn't. I still feel bad for him. He actually bought them with his own money that he saved. Anyone near my area with button quail? He already said he would save his money to buy another. His birthday is in October so if anyone is close maybe I could surprise him with another male eventhough I still don't know what to do with them. [​IMG]

    I think peepsnbunnies has some? She's in Central FL...Ugh! [​IMG] I can't remember the name of it right now!! It's near Wachula, but not Wachula...Are you near there? I'm not even sure she has any yet, but you can check with her and see [​IMG]
    If you were closer I'd give you one, I have 7 extra males [​IMG]

    Paddock, I live in Apopka but go to Astatula every weekend. I have two males that I am willing to let you have if you take both of them. I lost all my girls and am left with two boys that are caged together and doing great. I don't want to really get more girls for these guys. Have enough birds already.

    My son actually bought them from peepsnbunnies at a swap but I couldn't find a listing for her...As far as where he got out it, was outside. The cage they are in is outside. One of the hen's had just laid her first egg too.

    It's not to far from Altoona. I could meet you there. Altoona is on the edge of the National Forest off of S.R. 19. PM me and we can make arrangements to meet.
