Housing [ edit ]

Button Quails are not perching birds, and their feet are made for walking. So when putting your Quail in an aviary, make sure you remove the wire bottom. Instead, put wood shavings, shredded newspaper, or hamster/gerbil bedding. That way, they wont be stepping in feces.

Some people have a pair of Button Quail in a 10 gallon tank. This works, but they would still prefer more room. Buttons do fly, but they prefer not to. So, they don't need as much height in the habitat, but instead more walking space.
