    You guys might not believe this, but when I went to feed my button quails, I found a newborn baby inside of the food!! I check my quails every day and they haven't been nesting on any eggs!! I only have 3 quails and normally I know when to expect chicks way ahead but this caught me by total suprise!! WHAT??! [​IMG] And in the cage I found 2 other eggs scattered in totally different spots HATCHING!! If my quails were sitting wouldn't I have noticed??! [​IMG]

    Sadly all of them passed away. The mother was doing absolutely nothing to take care of them so I put them in an incubator but they all died.. [​IMG]
