I have a pair of silver button/king quails.
I got 6 healthy eggs with one hatching early this morning, another one died due to mum trying to help it out and it dried up :( wish i caught it earlier......
Baby (VERY cute :) ) has moved away from the nest and the mother has been following it around being very broody and keeping it warm.... the DRAMA is that she left the other eggs behind. she seems to have just ditched them.
I have taken them and put them in a temp incubator/brooder type box......... they were untouched for over and hour :(
are they already gone? i cant seem to see anything when i candle them.
im about to head and get a heat lamp (im only using a light bulb) etc or is it no point getting it?
