    Here are our beautiful Coturnix/Japanese quail eggs


    And just for fun (not an entry) I just wanted to share our Miracle. I had to help this chick hatch and I did not think it would make it. It had struggled for so long to hatch, barely making a peep (which worried me) so I helped out. After finally getting free of its egg it lay on its side twitching every now and then, still attached to its egg, all afternoon, all evening, and was still like that when I went to bed at 10pm. The next morning I got up to find it running around the incubator full of vim and vigour!!! I was sure I was going to get up and find a dead body, so it has been named Miracle.
