    So i just bought some Button eggs off ebay . I'm told that some of the colors they raise are "paisley" and white "turtle necks", "black" and "carmel brown" ( there's also cinnamon so i don't think the "carmel browns" are that ..but i have no idea) What are they really... anyone know?

    also, what amount of cage space do a pair of Button quail require since i want to be sure my new cages are made large enough ?

    Someone doesn't know how to name button quail [​IMG] That is sure frustrating [​IMG]

    A little hamster cage can suffice for a pair. The size if you are making cages

    The "black coloring" is probably a blue face, caramel sounds like red breasted...you will probably have to wait until they hatch. But I assure you the person has no clue what they are talking about with the names.

    that's kind of what i thought from what they called them.
    i cannot wait to get eggs and find out what hatches out....
    so a hamster cage is what..about 12" X 12" or so?

    That sounds like the correct sizing. Make sure no wire bottoms and you are all set [​IMG]

    i just heard back from the folks who have the parents..."paisley" is white with splashes of light and dark browns." Turtle necks" are white / silver neck bibs like a V - neck.
    so technically what would that be ?

    it's going to be fun to see any of these chicks hatch ..hehehe
    1 thing's for sure , these people are very fond of their birds ...they share their meals with their favorites and spend alot of time with them.
