    A button chick would be smaller yet. We used to raise them in my classroom.

    I should have said adult.

    I don't remember if it was you that posted a pic of a just hatched button or not. It was amazing how tiny the thing is. Coturnix eggs are little but buttons have to be minuscule.

    That would be a good side by side, a Coturnix egg and a button.

    How strange! I posted earlier, yet my post is not here?

    A post showing this picture. The picture shows a serama hen with her new chicks-cortunix quail. The picture is several years old. The chick in my previous picture is just a tad bigger than one of these.

    Another forum gremlin because I saw it. It was there. I just checked to see if it had been modified but if it was it was done secretly.

    Bet it shows back up later.
