    I have to share, I'm a first time clutch mom and I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm working on a second heat tank for them so that can be moved away from my other eggs. Anyone have any tips on how to best help the babies?

    Here is an album of them and momma's flock.

    I don't have a clue about button quail, but have to say they are really neat chicks. Good luck - keep them warm and fed a balanced ration, and they should be fine.

    Thank you! Right now I have them on a ground up mix of chick starter, grit & dried mealworms. :)

    Only 3 so far out of the six eggs I put in there at the same time. The others I have are new to the incubator. :)
