Do you have any problem with hens incubating full term? I have 1 pair of buttons that she get off a few days before they are due and the eggs are lost

Um...with Button-quails, only the males sit and incubate the eggs. If you have any problems, remove the female from the aviary :)

What species of Button-quail are they?

If she is sitting in the nest, she is most likely trying to lay an egg...

Jeez, someone hasn't done their homework :P hehe

...and yes ;)
