    My baby button is about 9 days old today and he still seems so tiny , it seems like the cortunix quail grew much faster but its hard to compare cause they are all grown up already and there is such a size diffrence.

    He looks just right for a button baby. What a cute bug! LOL You know, adult buttons are only the size of a lemon, with short toothpicks for legs. Just so you know. LOL
