    Name: Galaxy and Nova (unfortunately I recently lost Nova :hit)
    Age: 2 years
    Breed: Button Quail, or Chinese Painted Quail.
    Gender: Pair
    Other: they were the sweetest parents! I hatched them out myself, and paired them and the rest were re-homed. They were my first birds I ever owned! I hatched them out with my friends, they also were the first things I ever hatched\raised besides my shih-tzu dog Cutie. They were actually the things that started my poultry obsession, and my chickens cane a year later! Though they don't like to be handled, they are the sweetest things to each other! Nova was practically a phyco-broody, and Galaxy fed, watched, and cared for her her whole life! In fact, Galaxy helped her brood and hatch! Nova had a very hard time hatching, for some reason, (probably due to inbreeding from the seller of the eggs) her chicks would fully develope, but never hatch.. she was super dedicated, and heart broken after every failed attempt. Finally after a year and a half of trying, they became happy parents to 6 button chicks!!! Yay! After they were re-homed, she started trying again, but I comfanscated the eggs.... I had a hard enough time getting the 6 babies good homes! Unfortunately, 2 weeks ago, Nova unexpectedly passed.. RIP my beautiful baby!:hit..... Galaxy has been absolutely devestated... I am currently try to find him a mate... Hope you enjoy the pics! The last one is of a pair of their babies... I'll post some better pictures of Galaxy and Nova from my PC.
