we are hatching everything lol talking about everything too, come over silly!
actually Mims has just set quail and I have been begging others besides myself to give her tips on quail!!! I have a huge post I posted again burried by now on QUAIL HATCHERS TIPS NEEDED LOL @lynnhill
Oh great Sally. Then count me in. I thought it was meant for just chickens. I love love love my quail! I'd have hundreds of them if I could:) Well maybe I exaggerate a bit here.Lol I do not name them, but I always talk to them & pet them. I have 2 little brown girls who got their eyes poked out. I feel so bad for them, and was thinking I should just process them; but they are smart little ones and have no problems finding the food,water and dust baths. So I am going to let them alone to live out their little lives. I have to tell you all that I processed my first quail only a few days ago. It is very easy to do, but omw are they ever tiny once you get those feathers plucked off them. We thought we'd have them for our family for Christmas dinner allowing 2 birds per person. Now I doubt 2 are enough and none of us are big eaters.Michael says he doesn't think our new peeps are going to be ready for processing by Christmas, so will need to change menu plans I guess. Maybe rabbit.
