Quail egg hatching due next week
The quail eggs we got at the start of the month have been in the incubator for 12 days and they are due to hatch next week. This is a new venture for us and if all goes well, we will build up a colony of quails to supply us with eggs which will be used mainly as a cash crop. We will use some in our community cafe as well. Some of the males will be used as meat. I've found a medieval recipe for quails which I will try out.
