    so cute!!! I can't wait till we're hatching here too! They are so tiny and precious, I'm hoping not to get to attached though, since most of the guys will become food...

    I can make more from selling them since they are a novelty around here. Not food quite yet.

    these are females, though. Didn't you here? [​IMG] Yeah right!!!

    Apparently that joke went right over your head, Quail Lady.

    It's me being hopeful, cus you don't eat females. Get it?

    Cute! And, not only do I not eat the females, I don't eat the males, either.

    However, Id still like it if about 90% of my hatch turned out to be females. (HA HA. I have plenty of boys already I am sure...)

    Still hoping for some yummy pickled quail eggs from my new chicks.

    I'm having trouble with a foot feddish. They are pretty bad about it. Is there anything I can do to help the foot pecking problem?

    Also. I'm not sure they're eating. When do they normally start?
