    This is one of my button quail I hatched and I can't figure out what color it is. It's hard to tell because my camera is missing so I had to use my crappy phone to take the picture but it is fully feathered. It looks like it is all blue with red lacing and a red head. Is there a certain color that this is called also what would I breed it with to make more red laced blue buttons?

    You could try a cinnamon blue face male (if it's a hen) OR a cinnamon red breasted male. Got to wait to see what gender this one is [​IMG] It seems like it will be a hen [​IMG]
