    Here are some pics of button quail some of you thought may be unique. Their breast/bottom really glows under the right lights. I think there is a radiation leak somewhere!

    I don't keep buttons yet so I'm no colour expert by any means, but that is a cute bird! Love the red and blue.

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe that is a normal wild male. It could be a golden pearl, they are very similar. But I told you the normal wilds are very pretty!
    ETA: It could also have some cinnamon in it, he has a lot of red on his wings for a wild or pearl.

    They are stunning I would have to say one very nice example of that color. Breed them for sure. Got any females for them?
