    Took it through the bator window, so it's kinda fuzzy...

    Oh my! They are TINY! Can you tell I've never seen quail before...well, except for the wild quail where I grew up in the California desert-Gamble Quail I think? Congrats on your hatch by the way [​IMG]
  10. Yaay for Buttons! Aren't they the cutest little things?
    It does work (a little) to put them in the dark in the hatcher (I know because mine hatch 2' away from my pillow). The 'wheep wheep wheep' will keep you glued to the window, waiting for the next one to burst out or make you cover your head with a pillow
    My Button hatchlings (even from pip) are much more vocal than chicken chicks and always were hatching in the night.
