I have always thought button quail were so intriguing. So, I bought a pair a while ago and hatched two of their eggs. I had a woman contact me wanting some chicks, so I ordered some fertile eggs, and hatched 17 babies-she backed out on her order. The other day, one of them died, at three weeks old-no idea why. My original pair is super flighty, and pace all day long no matter how nice or large their enclosure is. Now, the two hens I originally hatched must have gotten spooked, because I went in today and they are a mess. They knocked the padding on the top of the cage down, and one had a huge scalp injury and blood coming out of her ears. The other is listless and has blood caked on her ears. I give up! I'm just killing them left and right. I'll stick to chickens! I put them on CL with no replies, and I'm not sure what to do with them now. I guess I'll try posting them in the FSOT here. Thanks for listening to me vent!
