    The future babies if all goes well. I had to put them in the other cooler in tell these hatched.
    They showed up on the 15 and I did not expect them in tell 21-24th The eggs where shipped really poorly and lost a lot of them before even setting them![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It has been a much better hatch than I had wished for.
    . My new homemade incubator is running like a champ,

    This is a batch of little mixed Cortunix birds mostly for the eggs but are sure
    pretty

    Now if the Big birds hatch as well[​IMG]

    . The buttons started hatching yesterday and didn’t stop all night. I never thought so many would become real birds. If someone wants buttons in Ohio I will be placing a free ad soon as everyone is a little older. It’s kind of hard to tell yet but I am getting some colors I didn’t start with.

    I will not set more buttons, I will not set more buttons, I will not set more buttons!!!!!!!![​IMG]

    Baby rabbits, Quail, and Buttons[​IMG][​IMG]Just to much cute in this house right now.

    I would absolutely love to get some of your Buttons!!!! I have been searching everywhere! They seem hard to find in Ohio. Where are you located? I am in Massillon.

    I just tried my first hatch in my new little giant with about 96-99 degrees and around60% humidity. The first batch hatch on day 16-17. 5 hatched. 2 died (my fault). Examined the rest of the eggs and most had a very small dark area resembling the start of an embryo.

    They eggs had arrived during that small period of cold a few weeks ago from Louisiana. 5 broke in shipping so he sent me another 25.
    5 were floaters or broke again. So I had to put them in with the others which made them about 1 week apart. so far on day 17, 3 hatched and day 20, 1 more hatched. I still have them in there in case more will hatch...doubtful

    They were on an auto turner. For some reason I had a hard time getting temp to regulate at first. And the humidity was to keep exact was very hard. I wonder if my temp spiking to 100 degrees would have killed them?????

    Any ways I am very sad I don't have very many and would like any suggestions, buttons, or eggs.

    New babies from last Sunday are doing great and the babies that started this thread started laying 2 days ago with 5 eggs today. I still can’t believe how fast they grow.
