    I went to a friend's house to borrow an incubator for the duck and goose eggs I got today. I was to use the incubator that my button eggs are in, but they are taking their sweet time, and I couldn't wait any more.

    Well, wouldn't you just know it?? I get home with the borrowed bator, and I have one button hatched and another zipping!! We were home probably 15 minutes and the zipped button was out already!! [​IMG]

    It is so much fun to hatch when it works!! [​IMG]

    Gosh, they are just the cutest little things! And it is a blast when it works! [​IMG] And an amazing bummer when it doesn't. [​IMG]

    Dumb question. What do people do with button quail. Or any quail for that matter? [​IMG]

    Button quial are the hoovers of the quail worls [​IMG] A lot of people have them in the bottom of their bird cages to clean up the spilled food. But buttons are just pets. They are about the same size as a budgie!!
    But other quail have a more useful purpose [​IMG] They are used for their eggs or meat! I guess you could probably eat button eggs too, but they are sooooo tiny!!
