    Quote:They are the same species.

    However, there is a family of birds in the order of Gruiformes that are known as Button-Quail (Turnicdae).

    Chinese Painted Quail is the REAL name for Button Quails.


    And the button quail that Lophora speaks of is the TRUE button quail and it's actually a type of crane!!!!! *interesting huh!?* [​IMG]

    Button Quails are known by MANY differnt names depending on the country they come from, however their true name is Chinese Painted Quail not button quail.

    Chinese Painted Quails are the worlds smallest quail
