    Don't feel bad. I've got the same problem with my Coturnix quails. My hatch rates were running way more than I expected so I'm drowning in quail!

    I hate to say it, but I think the surf-ride that was button quails has crested and ended. They were a really hot item a year ago, but I think the fad has fizzled out. [​IMG] If you raise them, it should be because you like them, not only to sell them.

    I fell in love with the pictures of your buttons. I even showed them to my husband and he agreed that the pics you took are absolutely adorable. Right now I just don't have any place to put them but believe me, if I did, I'd be all over them! LOL

    We're building a new barn. New barn = more room for Mama's chickens...et al....ROFL!!

    Buttons aren't selling worth a darn right now. I'm selling my birds' eggs on ebay. I'm not getting what I usually get for them, but at least I'm getting something. It will pick up again in the spring [​IMG] A lot of people don't want to buy shipped eggs in the winter.

    And here I am and not able to find buttons anywhere! LOL! I wish you could ship over the US/Canada border!

    Oh except this one guy who had 10 of them...offered to sell me as many as I'd like, but he had them all in seperate cages cause he thought they were fighting. Bizarre...I'll wait and get the quail from someone who knows what they're doing.

    ETA: This was my 500th post. [​IMG]
