2 of these Cortunix hatched 2 days ago I got them from the September Swap. Then I ordered a batch of both cortunix and buttons from Shelley. well 31 out of about (40) 12 cortunix and 19 buttons have hatched in the last 24 hours. I finally got all settled into a brooder and snapped a few photos to show them off!

Aren't they just the cutest things? I wish I had more space, I'd be overrun with buttons!

It looks like you've got a cinnamon coturnix in there, first one I've seen (from people who actually post pics

)

ETA: Though I do have a new chicken coop going up, with 8' walls. That's a lot of space that I can't reach very well, maybe I'll wire it all in and just fill 'er up with buttons

Wow. Those are small. I know they were tiny but I didn't realize how tiny until I seen them beside that Coturnix. That is almost cool enough to make me want one but I know the novelty would probably ware off in a few months.
