    Oh geez! How cute!
    I might have to get some buttons. So are most hens broody or were you just lucky with yours? I'm unfamiliar with buttons. I only have coturnix and I'm still learning about them.

    Here's some of my babies....

    Im pretty new to buttons myself, this is my first hatch. I've heard some people say that buttons arnt very broody, but someone with more experience might be able to tell you if thats true or not.
    Either way i still think im super lucky, mine are great parents.
    more of my lil ones..

    Quote:I absolutely love my valleys! I'm so happy that some of their eggs are hatching this week, I can't wait to see what their babies will look like! I'll have to post some more pics of the parents and the chicks when they hatch [​IMG]

    How about I do a test hatch for you and I won't even charge you a thing since it's so close to Christmas....[​IMG]

    No seriously.... [​IMG] I may have to get some eggs...no, I don't dare. I'd get myself into trouble if I needed another pen built, though I could just divide my one in half...hmmmm


    I'm out of control so I've been told. [​IMG]
