Why do people raise Buttons? I'm thinking about raising them, but want to know the pros and cons, as well as what they're useful for.

Thanks!

They're cute. That's it.

They are too small for eggs or meat or dog training. They make fun
pets.

As chicks they are the size of bumblebees.

What I'm wondering is if there is a market (i.e. pet shops and such) that would make it worthwhile getting them. I'm not interested in them as "pets" so to speak (I already have enough of those - lol), so would only want them if there is some real value to having them. Gosh that sounds harsh, but I hope you know what I mean

citalk2much sells them pretty well! Ships em too just like i do my coturnix. If I were you I'd call around to petshops and see if they'd be interested in them. I did when I had mine and no one wanted them

LOL it wasnt for me
don't listen to me though here in PA barely anyone knows the value of coturnix quails either (and they are edible *meat and eggs* and thier hatching eggs sell nicely)....I have to ship out birds ot other states as well as hatching eggs. I've had 3-4 customers tops in PA and thats sad....
