    Woooo another egg today.

    Will buttons go broody??? There is no way I can spark up my huge incubator for a handful of button eggs.

    That's pretty early for button quail to be laying. You must have super buttons [​IMG]

    ETA: Buttons can brood but it is usually after they have been laying for a while.

    No thanks on the eggs.

    I'm pretty sure they are 7 weeks old...they might be just a touch older, but I'm sure i've got the math right. They are in my living room and they are getting plenty of light....soooo????
