First quail egg
A couple of days ago we had the first quail egg of the year. And this morning, we had 2. So it looks as though the quails know spring is on its way. Meanwhile, I have ordered quail hatching eggs from a different source to the one we previously used 3 years ago when we first hatched quail eggs. This is to widen the gene pool. After 3 generations of interbreeding, there was a need to add some new genes to the colony.
