    I love love love my buttons, you may not be able to eat the birds but the eggs make the bestest pickled eggs you ever ate and not to mention they are like Paxil....all you have to do is take two daily doses of 10 minute intervals watching these guys in the day time its HILARIOUS!

    Love your Buttons missred871

    LOL I know I never planned on eating mine either but a lot of people think they arent good for anything because you cant eat the bird itself. Go check your other thread. I posted in it for you. I dont think you should spend more money where it isnt needed the best thing to do with buttons is let them show you what they want. they are quite low maintantence really​

    awe they are cuuute. i have a male and a female in those colors. Have fun with them, I know you asked me about a sandbox, and I dont believe I answered you, we use a small drawer out of one of those table top organizers with the 5 drawers. You can cut a sall cardboard box or use a shoebox top or even a shallow plastic reusable container anything that will hold about 3/4 of an in of sand or so. They will have it all out within a day or two lol.

    they are regular wild color I think I answered u in your other post but I will put it here in case you are watching this one more. They are also known as the blue chinese button. That is just a fancy way of saying this is the general color they are found in the wild.
