20. The thing about the coturnix quail that I raise...
is that they won't go broody. The only way to replicate them is to put their eggs in an incubator. I have twenty saved up that will go in the inky tonight. :-)

Button quail are pretty much domesticated. They'll live out their lives in their own big spacious cage, being fed by my son and me. :-)
