17 quail chicks
We had expected the quail chicks to hatch yesterday but we got our calculations a day out. Throughout this morning I checked the incubators but there was no sign of activity. I then had to go to a meeting and returned home for just a few minutes at 3pm to find 6 quail chicks in the incubator. I then had to go out again and did not return until 8pm. By then, 16 had hatched and since then another has emerged. A good hatch rate and a good number of birds to add to the 6 that hatched last month. It seems our little quail venture is moving forward.
