I am trying to follow a coturnix quail thread on here and honestly I am rather confused about how the forum and threads are really organized.
I don't know how I found this one.............but I am so glad that I did!
I want to find a coturnix quail thread that is a little active ............like this thread
seems like a lot of the info is not current people navigating their questions etc.
any recs on this?
when I do searches I have not found particularly useful leads.................I tried the advance search...........not really an improvement.
maybe its not there?
there are a lot of forums or threads..............that are not active and only a few pages long............

can the color also come from the hen, then I would have to add almost all of the flock to that list.......
that second pic with the thick legs, I would bet comes from my delaware/orp rooster,,,,I hatched a bunch of test birds from that combo and they looked just like that one.

let's hope that these are hen's......what does the brooder look like with that many chicks...this was just your test hatch, right.... so what's next
Thanks for all the great comments!
I really liked the lace for the background also.
Brooder looks pretty full right now. I am getting an other rabbit hutch on Friday $50. It was hand built not 6 months ago. Going to put it in my shed for now with a heat lamp (all I have to use at the moment) that is where the chicks will be moving to when they get some more feathers in. I would love it if thebtemps outside would go up soon!
Yes, Wing, this was my test hatch. Turned out pretty good I think.
I also hope the last two chicks turn out to be hens. It sure would be nice.
I already have duck eggs set in the coolerbator for the easter hatch a long. My SS finally started laying so I was collecting their eggs as much as possible. Hoping they are fertile. I also have collected some of my other byf's eggs. Not sure how they will turn out. Ohh, I joined the southern York poultry and went to my first "meeting" with them. (It was more like a fun night out with other chicken lovers) It was great! I won a dozen eggs from there. I know a few of the eggs are Cochen'sCochen's. Can't remember what the other ones were. Anyhow, lol dunno what I will do with them all if they all hatch but I have somewhere around 4 dozen chicken eggs for the hatch a long. I set 22 duck eggs already.
I have forced myself to stop collecting eggs for the hatch a long.... They all go in my frig now. Unless I find someone wants some eggs.
