Quails moved out

The 8 surplus male quails have now been moved to a new home. They were exchanged this evening for 9 fertile cream legbar chicken eggs. The quail are now in an aviary on the neighbouring allotment to ours. They have taken well to the great outdoors. The eggs will go into the large incubator we have on loan towards the end of this week. We need to order more fertilised eggs in the meantime.

Even with the surplus quail now gone, we need to get on with building our own aviary. We need to purchase some materials but I'm hoping to build as much of it as possible from recycled timber.
