    I hatched out a white Button with two black spots on his neck. I was told these are pied. Anyone else have these or tuxedos? I just love both. I haven't had any luck finding anyone with the pieds or tuxes hatching eggs for sale. Love to see some pictures of your tuxes and pieds :)

    Tammie as I am sure you are learning it is very hard to hatch out just one color of button quail. Most hatches are several colors, IF you find a dealer who hatches out one color they have spent years breeding to get that one color only by picking the parent birds and following the gene line to the color they are looking for. So good luck finding them in just pied or tux's.
