Hi, recently acquired 7 button quail..i have googled info on them..but i would like some first hand owner information and tips on raising them. I believe they are around 3 weeks old..i'm not sure if i have males or females..(can you tell for me?), I would also like to know the best way to house them...right now i have them in small fish tank..but i have many cages that i could use...do they need to live on wood shavings? are they bottom dwellers all the time?..or could i use a cage and use small perches for them to stand on?..also..i read that they start to lay at 6-8 weeks old?..is this true?..and do they need nests box things? and what should i use for the nest boxes? also..can i keep them all together?..males and females? i would like to hatch one clutch from them(if i have both sexes)..what do i need to do for that?...sorry so long of a post.....i would appreciate any help..thanks, Wendy Can you tell if they are male or females?
