The Chinese Painted Quail (Coturnix chinensis), also known as the button quail, KING quail, Chung-Chi, Asian blue quail or blue-breasted quail, is the smallest true quail. The male comes in many colours, including blue, brown, silver, maroon, dark brown & almost black. They have orange feet which are hard and able to withstand a continuous life on the ground like many other game birds.The female is similar to the male but cannot come in shades of blue. They are hyperactive breeders: a female will lay an egg a day if kept on the proper diet. They are seed eaters, but will also take insects and similar small prey. They nest on the ground.
