This is what I get for not paying attention to when I put eggs in the incubator. I woke up to find 5 quail chicks. Then I had to scrounge around and put together a make-shift brooder because the other one still have the 3 chicks in it. There are actually 7 quail chicks (out of 10 egg that were sent from Washington state. (That is REAL good considering the person who sent them packaged so poorly that 7 eggs broke!) however, two of them had to have help hatching and don't look as good as the others. There are still some quail eggs in there that should hatch in ....oh I don't know how many days, lol.


  1. Awww... So Sweet. I'm tryin to resist the urge to fire up the bator, but its so hard!

  2. I am hatching but conservatively. I know, I know--no such thing...but it CAN be done, lol. I needed to restock my quail and chickens as well after raccoon attacks last year.
