I originally built this for a chick brooder for my occasional hatchings, but am having other ideas... I want to keep the top floor a brooder for my hatchings but the bottom one I want to keep a pair of buttons in for pets and breeding. I live in the city so I sadly can't have rooster so no chicks... :/ BUT! I think I found something I can still hatch year around!! Button quail!!! I love hatching but it cost so much to continue ordering eggs to hatch.. The problem is... I know nothing about them or breeding them! What would you do to make this a suitable environment? I've only ever hatched chickens. If it helps, I have a automatic hovabator 1588 with turner. I'm extremely excited about my discovery and am eager to read your information!
