    I just bought 4 button quail at a local auction last night. They are so cute despite being infested with mites. They are seperated (in my house actually) and being treated. I would like to get some more and start raising them. Can anybody recommend a source ? Eggs would be fine too, but would prefer chicks and/or adults.

    If you have four of them and there are males and females your chances of eventually getting fertile eggs are pretty good - if you have an incubator they are not too difficult to raise, you could have more quail than you know what to do with very soon lol.

    Most people sell hatching eggs but if you canf ind someone near you who has them you might find some adult birds.
