i love how when my indoor rooster crows the quails try to mimic him and now there call has changed.

I have a single pair that I got from a breeder in April of this year. I did hatch out 7 chicks in May in an incubator and do have some photos I can post later (after I figure it out). I sold all the chicks, 4 males/roos and 3 female/hens to another breeder and kept the pair, they just keep laying more eggs! I saved a few but most I just toss. I just can not make myself cook them even to fed back to the buttons.
I hope to incubate some in the spring.

I've got some pictures of my birds. It's crazy how fast they grow up! I got mine when they were three weeks old, and i think the tuxedos were a little younger.
Here's Joan and Pearl on their first day home.


Little Buzz at three weeks.


Little Buzz at six weeks, all grown up and starting to lay eggs.


This is Neil Armstrong:


And his mate Violet, who used to be Shy Violet but that attitude has changed DRASTICALLY with age!


Leia, with pretty eye freckles:


Pearl, with pretty throat spots:


And Joan, the most photogenic quail ever, who can literally not take a bad picture.


Seriously, the camera loves this bird.
