    My daughter wanted to try and hatch the Valleys' eggs. I didn't really think so many would hatch what with all the dire warnings about sanitation, not touching eggs, not really equipt for quail, just finished with turkeys, and out of 18 eggs got 13. WOW! They are so cute and tiny!. One got wet and we held it in our hands to dry it. It snuggled against my daughters hand, closed it's eyes and I swear it sighed. She was in heaven.
