Well, only Bella did actually, but I'm sure Izzy is the Father of it :D They are my little pet button quail and this is the first time that Bella has produced an egg. It won't hatch - unfortunately it has a small crack in it - but I'm hoping for more now that they've had their first. I know they are doing what needs to be done for fertilizing the eggs so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have some baby buttons in the near future!

NO, I am a LIVING ROOM (WANNABE) Button breeder :thumbs up

After all I've read I really do doubt that they'll be able to hatch any babies on their own so unless I wanna fork out the dough for an incubator all I'll probably ever be is an egg producer :(

I will take some pictures tonight and post them!

I know NOTHING about button quails, but I do remember that our turtle doves Tony and Cleo had a gazillion eggs before they had one that hatched (jimmy dean). We always thought they'd never have a baby and then...voila! In came Jimmy!

so you never know... :fingerscr

Well, if they ever decide to be responsible parents I'll let ya know! Maybe I'll even have a naming poll or something.
