Description

Description

Description: The King Quail (Excalfactoria chinensis), also known as the Blue-breasted Quail, Asian Blue Quail, Chinese Painted Quail, or Chung-Chi, is a species of Old World quail in the family Phasianidae. This species is the smallest "true quail", ranging in the wild from southeastern Asia to Oceania with 10 different subspecies. It is quite common in aviculture worldwide, where it is sometimes misleadingly known as the "buttonquail", which are actually not poultry birds at all and are actually hemipodes - members of a small family of birds, Turnicidae which resemble but are unrelated to the quails of Phasianidae. These quail come in a variety of colors including but not limited to silver, blue, brown, white, and pied.

Most require DNA testing to guarantee a male or female depending on age and color. This quail has been very popular to keep and breed for many years; numerous mutations have been developed. They are quite hardy once they have adjusted to their surroundings and will keep the bottom of an aviary spotless. A great advantage of these quails is that they will live exclusively on the ground, & will not interfere with other birds. The cost of maintaining them is very little. They have been known to become hand-tame.

Geography: Asia, Africa, Europe, and Australia

Song / Call: Click to hear the female Button Quail.  

Size / Weight:  12 to 23 cm (4.7–9.1 in) in length and weigh between 30 to 130 g (1.1–4.6 oz).

Breeding: Both sexes cooperate in building a nest in the earth, but only the male incubates the eggs and tends the young. The eggs hatch after an incubation period of 12 or 13 days, and the young are able to fly within two weeks of hatching.

Temperament: Button Quails are small, neat, and relatively quiet, (although they do have a fairly extensive "vocabulary" that you will come to understand if you take the time!). Their antics are always amusing, and they are very active, always searching the ground for seeds and other finds. Button quails can become very tame, especially if raised by hand, and if you are patient enough, may be willing to eat from your hand or even let you scratch under their chin.

Diet: The omnivorous Button Quail eat Dove & Quail Seed, Australian Blend GoldenfeastMineral Grit, and softbill seed mixes on the market. In addition, they enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables like tomato, cucumber slices, tiny sprouts, broccoli, hard-boiled eggs and bread soaked in juice or water. Button quail especially enjoy insects such as mealworms, however too many mealworms are bad for your quail. A safe number to feed an individual button is six per day. You can also feed them crickets as a treat.

DNA Testing 

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.
