    What is the noise comparison in a button quail and a coturnix quail? Like the calls... The button quail is a soft subtle cute whistle like call. I have a bunch of buttons but am about to hatch coturnix next. What kind of noise can I expect?

    Thank you

    In my experience, which is limited, once they got to 4/5 weeks they crowed constantly! I only hatched out 13 but 9 were boys. One of the boys was exceptionally loud but the one I kept has a very low call, which doesn't bother me. I'm sorry I haven't heard a button call but if you keep the males in the house, once they start crowing it will drive you crazy.

    They're crow aren't very loud compared to the button quail location sound, also their call is very abrupt and the button quail call for a longer time.

    Really? That's cool. Maybe I'll just have to keep atleast one make then so that I can get fertile eggs.
