    Thanks you guys you are all awesome. I decided to give like 7 of them away to a person on here. She came on in the chat room asking about where she could get button quail eggs and she has raised them so I got my quail eggs today and I will be sending them to her ASAP [​IMG] she even asked if she could pay for shipping I told her no need to that I will send them anyway [​IMG] and pay for the shipping myself. I just asked her in return was to take pictures of them when the all hatched and to name one after me



    So she promised me that and promised to take pictures of Sunshine espicalley [​IMG]
