My Button was doing something similar to what you are talking about.
Check her abdomen if it is swollen then you need to get her into a vet. she could possibly have some peritonitis going on. Believe it or not my button had 3 eggs up in her from November to Jan.1 of this year and she wasn't egg bound.
She still has some eggs in her that we are waiting for her to pass.She kept reproducing more eggs that I can feel.
If your button has this going on she will need to be put on Baytril. I found that giving my female some Kaytee Exact hand feeding formula for baby birds helpful. You can syringe feed her that if needed. If not mix a scoop in it with the water and she will eat on her own.
Not very many vets are familiar with button quail.
She should be X rayed and even have an ultra sound to see if there are any eggs in there.If she has Yellow droppings that also could indicate that she has parsites or egg peritonitis.
Good Luck .
