    Hi
    I just bought button quail eggs off Ebay.

    I am is SW washington and bought from feathered-obsessions 30+ hatching eggs for 13.00 including shipping.

    They just came this morning and were well bubble wrapped and in custom quail egg cartons.

    They are in Aloha, Oregon and I decided to have them shipped instead of picking them up and they came in 1 day.

    They are going in the bator on Wed morning. They sent 40 eggs and they are all sizes and colors from small to itty bitty small. All different colors of green and grayish. They keep their buttons in individual breeding pens.

    I guess that I will find out about colors sna fertility in about 17 days.

    Good luck

    Buttons are so fun to hatch-one day you look in and see a bunch of little fuzz balls running around. I didnt know the first time how far those tiny babies could jump, so I was chasing around these little fuzzy things under the bed, dressers etc lol-thought I would never catch them, my cats were waiting to help me outside the bedroom door since they could hear them peeping and running around lol. What a fun experience that was [​IMG] Good luck-you should have a bunch in about 14 days, cant wait to see you post pics of the colors. If you havent had babies before make sure you set up your water for them-I take a quail size water fount and put those flat marble things that people put in vases (found them at walmart, hobby lobby and michaels)in the base, worked great for me, they could stand on the glass stones and drink the water inbetween them
