    Coturnix Info and pictures:

    16 day incubation
    are bred mainly for look at caged pets, just like how finches are, they are great bottom aviary cleaner uppers (will clean up what perchingbirds discard like seeds and such).
    worlds smallest quail, are mainly very skiddish and dont really want to be handled. Can fly and jump VERY WELL. Can be housed in 10 gallon tanks, do well and best in pairs but can be housed in groups but there may be fights and even murders lol. When scared they jump up into the air and can hit their heads and actually break their own necks. The males have a pretty call sounds like a pretty whistle. Buttons come in MANY colors and are fun for genetics.
