This is my first time to hatch quail chicks. They(14) are not quiet 24 hours old but they are LOUD! At first I figured they are cold, fussing like a chicken chick, but that doesnt seem to be it. They are all eating and drinking so not that. Lonely? I gave them a beanie baby after trying a teenie runt silkie chick that ended up being a giant to them. They love their beanie mommie. DO they SING at this age? One calls, one answers, they swap around and keep on and on and on and on....and the more they practice the louder they are getting! It sounds like a forest in my Den. I just need a water fall and some plants hanging down for the full experience. I played audio of an adult Bob white males call and thats the first time all day they have been quiet! Are these males? What else do I need to know before these little bumble bee sized singers shock me!
