    Hi everyone, it's been a while, but I keep reading all the posts.
    So many new babies!
    I had 5 good hatches of quail, on average 15-16 birds each hatch, and then my quails just quit laying for a while, so I bought some Sussex eggs and put 8 in my little incubator, my first time hatching chickens!
    Four are pure light sussex and four are buff rooster over light hen. Day 8 today.

    And I have an "araucana" quail [​IMG]

    Welcome. Ok I am guilty of not knowing your little town and I had my honeymoon many years ago at the bunya mountains. Beautiful area. We had a friend lived at Kumbia for many years.

    Hey red, I was just thinking about you the other day wondering how your quail venture was going. Lovely eggs. Quail eggs come in the weirdest of colours. Every now and then I get an egg from my Italian pen that is darker than a marans egg. Shame it doesn't consistently lay that colour.
