parrotfrk, you seem to be breeding buttons, well I bought two last week I couldn't resist. They look like a dalmation in color. I looked up the big breeder in lousiana and that color is not mentioned. what do I call them? they are so cute, I believe they are hens and I have them with a white male. The breeder I got them from said he doesn't know where that color came from. He has hundreds. Either way I wanted them. I want more colors like them.

Probably splash. Here's a link.

I just found out I have cortunix quail. I bought them a year ago labeled buttons. I thought that the mutation I had wasn't very common in buttons that's why I hardly ever saw it. Come to find out my birds are too big to be buttons. Oh well. Thank goodness I didn't get real buttons to house them with.

Sorry Tiffany off topic. I sent you a message to your profile Rob about the quail.
