Button quail (Japanese painted quail or king quail) are tiny little critters full of energy and love! They come in lots of different colors and patterns, making them unique pets to have! They happily live in bird cages, prefer to live in colonies between six and twelve, and lay one of the tiniest eggs you will ever see.
The males make two distinct calls and do extremely cute mating displays when placed in pens with females. When chicks hatch out, they are roughly the size of a quarter! They grow rather quickly, reaching adulthood at around 6-8 weeks and hens begin laying eggs shortly after.
In addition to coming in multiple colors and
patterns, the eggs they lay have a wide range
of coloring. Browns, greens and blues are
common to see, and some even have mottling.
We raise a variety of button quail and have hatching
eggs and chicks available year round. We have
several breeding pens set up, some sorted by color.
