    Don't get me wrong, I DON'T WANT THEM TO. I am just wondering if they would. A few weeks ago, I had a pretty bad hatch. I got 2 A&M cortunix, and 1 button chick out of 38 eggs total. They are obviously being brooded together, and they seem to be getting along well. I was wondering if they would breed, if left together? I would like to keep them together, so the little button doesn't get lonely, provided they are still getting along. I just don't think I would want A&M and button crosses!
