I am hatching quail eggs along with you! Sounds really fun. Have yourself ready for a rooster though. My button quail cockerel crows very loudly, and he is the size of a budgie too. He usally does his "crowing sessions" around 3AM-5/6AM. I hear them a lot in my dreams, luckily I am a deep sleeper.
What breed of chicken are you hatching/what color of the eggs? I am so glad you have decided to start and joined BYC. There is much info in the learning center and incubating and hatching eggs section of the forum. Good luck on the hatch!
