    for the most part, our little button is pretty calm. Just keeps out of reach when we feed and water.
    But as soon as I get the camera out she runs and hides under or behind one of the Coturnix she is living with.
    It's so funny watching her try and "Hide".

    Can you see her now? [​IMG]

    Hi Missi,
    Thanks. [​IMG]
    Do you see her in the first picture? You really have to look, but she is there. lol...

    As soon as she see's the camera, she runs!

    The Cots are about 5-6 weeks now, and she is about 4 days younger.

    I ordered eggs that will ship today, so soon we'll have her a friend of her own kind. And many more Cots. [​IMG]

    Quote:She is some type of redbreast, evidenced by the barring on her breast. Supposedly, cinnamon redbreast is just a 'normal' redbreast, but she is not normal. Quaillady would know better on this one.

    That's really cute. My buttons don't like pictures either.
