    The daddy is the sweetest little man and I love his color too. When I clean and feed he just watches me and doesnt panic like momma.

    I find that the ones that you hatch out usually do get used to you. The ones that escape on me are ones that I adopt...I adopt plenty [​IMG]

    I don't handle my buttons but they KNOW I am the ones that feed them and steal their eggs [​IMG] oh and I bring them mealie worms and Creeping Charlie from the backyard...they are fun. It's takes a while to care for them each day but they watch what I do, evening cleaning the coturnix cages, they always wonder why I am not paying attention to them [​IMG]
