    Hey, I'd like some Buttons to surprise my dad. I had a few a few years ago, but they have since passed on and I kinda miss the dinky little buggers, and I'd really like to hatch some. They'd be housed with 2 pairs of Japanese quail (the smaller ones), so if you think that's a bad idea please speak up before I make a quail massacre! Any sellers? I would love an interesting array of colors, but I'm not picky. I'll take whatever. Thanks!

    Quote:I think Japanese are Coturnix quail and Button Quail are also called Chinese Painted. So... they're both Asian. lol.

    Thanks for the leads!

    I just realized the eggs won't fit in my turner... blonde moment there. I do have a quail tray, but I can't switch it out yet cause I've got chicken eggs going right now. How much longer will they still be laying?​
