    My coturnix and buttons are due starting today about every other day for a week.. Could kick myself for putting them in as they came. 8, 5, 7, 3, it is hard to keep track of.

    I keep wanting to peek. [​IMG]

    I hear peeping- must not! not! not!----[​IMG]

    I'm looking! I'm looking!![​IMG]

    1 light colored button, 1 light and dark button? and 1 A&M coturnix..[​IMG]

    I don't have the ability to put pics on the computor must wait for cd from town.. So pics will come later(will not take them yet anyway)

    easiest way I have found to lable a staggard hatch is with PTouch printer,
    the labels can be trimmed small wnough to set right n the auto turner, peel off when hatch is over , next staggard hatch P ough again and your golden!

    Your milage may vary..

    I will try that next time, great idea!

    More have hatched!! I can't count through the window though. Not that there are that many just can not see them all. I'm being good, [​IMG] no more peeks.[​IMG]

    Going to do my outside chores so I wont be tempted![​IMG]
    Later to night I will move them to a brooder and take a count.

    blk eyes on a tux

    These are my first from my quail. Tux, brown, pharoah and manchurain are mix in one pen till spring. The a&m are separate. I thought they would quit laying anytime now, must not be quite cold enough. It's not freezing inside their coop yet.

    [​IMG][​IMG] Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!
