    Heyya everyone im just wondering whats going on with my 2 month old button quail... i just put them in with the 2 serama (1 is a week old and the other is 3 days old) i had the two serama by them selves with food and water in a brooder the buttons were out in the garage with a light also a 100W infared.. and the serama were with a 40W little white light dimmed to 3/4 .... the buttons are running around the new aquairium trying to get out and they have their mouth open and under their chin vibrating... does this mean there to cold or too hot or something... there on the warm side... pics coming in a few min.


    HERES WHERE I HAD THE SERAMA FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS. (by there selves

    Have you tried moving them to the other side away from the heat?

    Are they drinking?

    You might want to put some rocks or marbles or something in the waterer so that they dont fall in and drown....

    Maybe put them in the little box-house? Seems like they are hot for some reason to me...
