Five of a new quail hatch hatched two days early, on Day 15, exactly one year since my first hatch.
Yes, that’s a bottle cap. Coturnix quail are amazingly small but they’ll grow quickly to full size within 2-3 months. Our friends with young kids are visiting so I started up a new hatch for them to see. The plan was to keep a small group, three to five of them, and sell the remainder. The buyer I found is interested in more quail, so I’m hoping to have enough so I can have some too.
