    Well, the guy with the buttons has valley quail that should be producing by March. Anyone have any info on them? Are they loud? Can they be housed indoors? What're the caging requirements if you can house them indoors? Thanks guys!

    Quote:I wouldn't house them like a lot of people house their buttons, should be in a planted aviary with lots of room. Overall, They are an active & nervous species and need the room. Keeping them in an cage indoors, unless one is a hand-reared pet, would be cruel.
