The Quails!

To be different this year, I decided to hatch quail eggs instead chicken eggs. One of my team members got chicken and quail eggs from her parents farm and we are waiting patiently for them to hatch! Next Wednesday is the big day, if all goes well!


Tis picture was taken pre incubator. Aren’t they cute? They will be the size of your thumb when they hatch! If anyone knows any great books about quail, I’d love to know! I ordered the only one I could find suitable for young children and it was from a publishing company in the UK!

  1. I’ve hatched “Button Quail” before…they are amazing! They only get as big as a chick & are so much fun to watch. I’ve had a pair of them as pets. Check them out for next year.
