    My button quail momma just hatched out 8 babies out of 9 eggs. I now have 11 babies from this pair. Momma is the wild color and dad is a red breasted but we have 3 light colored babies the rest are dark. So cute! Can they breed together...hows that work?

    Congratulations! Nice that momma decided to brood makes it much easier! and No electric bill! lol
    Yes you can breed them together but it is always best to introduce new stock every year or so to keep from getting malformation, deformities.
    good luck!
