I lost one of my chicks this past weekend. She was the only one that didn't mind being held and the only one I had named so far. She liked to get up on my shoulder and snuggle, even fell asleep a few times. She was my favorite. I feel bad because if it weren't for my inexperience I would have noticed she was ill sooner. I would have started treatment sooner and she could have made it. I now know I missed/misread symptoms. The good news is that the rest seem to be doing fine. I'll be keeping an eye out for any similar signs in them.
The ducks and quail are doing good. The quail have been very happy since moving outside. Now, whenever I go out to visit them I get lots of crowing. Not looking forward to butchering some of them. Many of the colors I like seem to be males, including my favorite one. I need to stop picking favorites. Here are some pictures I took last week to post in the quail forum because I'm trying to get confirmation on what colors they are.
This is my favorite and I only have one of this color.
