Making an entrance

There was one wee quail ready to greet us at breakfast time this morning! Here’s a quick peek at our first ten arrivals after being transported in the trusty fleece hat to the brooder in the old church.

As I write, a further five have hatched, so still a way to go yet!

    Oh Wow, they are too cute and with the same colouring as their eggs. Good luck with the rest of them. Laura

    Oh this is just magic, and they must be warm in there – no huddling, evidently they are terrible huddlers.. well done..

      This morning yesterday’s group are running around like mad things, jumping in and out of their food and water! Two died overnight unfortunately but we’ve just added the seven who greeted us from the incubator this morning. Still a way to go.

    Congratulations on the new arrivals, they are so tiny! How many have you got now?

    • garybuie01 Says:

      They are so energetic that it’s difficult to count them! As of this morning, we have about 20, although sadly two died overnight. I think that when hatching is finished, we’ll have to count the un-hatched eggs and subtract from the original 60 to gat an accurate number!
