    My coturnix hatch last night but my button didn't so I waited till this afternoon and took them out to open them to see what might had gone wrong. most of the egg were yolkers and a couple quiter so I was really bummed about that. We I let shelly know what had happened since she sent me the eggs and then when I got home tonight I found this button who had hatched while I was gone. some how the egg got kicked back behind my thermometer and I didn't see it. All I can figure is the Coturnix decided to play football with the small eggs and it got hidden in the back.lol well here it is.

    Quote:just be aware, i have 4 buttons in need of a home, tried finding them a home but no go yet. been even offering them for free. It's 1 hen (cinnamon) 1 roo (cinnamon) and 2 whites (both look to be roos). They are almost 4 weeks old. I'd be wiling to ship them to ya for the cost of shipping (after sending me the shipping box....so technically cost of shipping box and shipping.....but shipping shouldnt be much at all). If ya dont want them no biggie BUT juuust lettin ya know they ARE looking for a home ;)LOL
