The quails have hatched
Our little quail venture has got off the ground. On Tuesday and Wednesday, 7 of the 12 eggs hatched. I still have the remaining 5 eggs in the incubator but I don't expect anything to come of them. Tonight we will switch it off. The quail chicks are now in an old aquarium which will act as a brooder for the next couple of weeks. They are quite lively and have a good appetite.
