    [​IMG][​IMG]Hello! Does anybody have pictures of their Button Quails when they were babies and how they look as adults? If u do please post some pictures up I think it would help others to determine how their babys will turn out. I just started hatching my and I have so many colors the weird thing is I the father and mother's are tuxedo and I'm getting whites,wild,silver's,caramel,and some weird looking ones that are cool. The tuxedo babies are so cute!

    there are very few if any true buttons colors. what I mean by that is that the birds can be any color from two parents as they have been cross breed for years as household pets. I have gotten cinnamon, regular and others from my cinnamon pair. the one chick now looks just like mom and she is cinnamon. you just never know.
