    There's a whole section on quail in the index. And they have lots of pics of coops etc. there.

    There are at least 2 stickies at the top of this (Quail) forum regarding button quail, one written by me and the other by quailladyoffortmyers. Button quail need to be kept in pairs but can be kept in relatively small areas. Mine are in 'cages' that are 11" x 11".

    If you still have questions after reading those stickies, I'm sure one of us will be able to assist you. As for pricing, you'll just have to shop around. I have no idea what they go for where you live [​IMG]
