    I will be getting my button quail eggs today! Yea! [​IMG] I am going to keep them outside in an aviary that is being built in my garden. Does anyone have any suggestions for automatic watering systems that would work for the button quail. I hope to add other birds later when I figure out which breeds will overwinter outdoors in North Alabama! Is there an automatic feeder that you would recommend? And, while I am at it, how old are they when they can be taken out of the brooder. I have my chicks outdoors during the day and in the brooder at night...they are a week old.

    I use these all over my lots. Simple to use and work great!! I used them for chicks to ducks. Don't know about the button quail, they are tiny. But the may work with something they could stand on the reach the water. Don't forget to order the mounting brackets.
