13 quail chicks
The quail eggs started hatching on Wednesday. I am a bit disappointed with the hatch rate - 13 out of 28. We are wondering if this has been caused by too few males. In our quail aviary we have 11 females and 2 males. We possibly need a 3rd male. Nevertheless, all 13 hatchlings are doing well, unlike last month when only 3 survived.
