I think they are a great choice! I started with buttons and have switched over to the Coturnix quail. They are mild mannered esp. If you hold them and are around them often.

I hatched 12 coturinx for the first time and they are a mix. I have three Texas a&m and they are calm as sleeping cat but the rest are the normal color phase and they are the complete oposite

I have 9 hens and 3 roo's, 25 in the incubator. The hens seem to love when I'm around them. They all start chirping. Sounds like crickets.

I've had 15 hatch so far out of the 24. Still got some moving around. All eggs are from standard Coturnix ,,,, BUT, I have one chick that looks a lot different than all the rest. Any thoughts? The person I bought the eggs from does not have any other breed if bird.
