We here at Boredom Therapy strongly believe that the smaller an animal is, the cuter it is. So imagine how excited we were when we stumbled upon Button Quail chicks. They’ve got all the adorable fluffiness of your average chick, but are even smaller, and therefore, much cuter.

Originally found in Africa and southern Asia, Button quails are the smallest of the true quail species, so their babies are extra tiny.

Here’s one next to a baby chicken for comparison. See?

When they’re born, button quails weigh just a few grams.

They fit right in the palm of your hand!

Button quails come in a variety of colors like silver, white, brown, and many other combinations.

Their light frame makes them great skateboarders as well, apparently.

They’re very vocal, and communicate with a wide range of clicks, chirps, and crows.

Even when they’re all grown up, they still fit comfortably in your hand.

Button quail chicks actually make great pets. They’re highly active and always on the move, searching for seeds and other little trinkets. Their small size makes them easy and inexpensive to care for, too. But most importantly, they’re just so darn cute!
