I have never had coturnix quail before. I bought 30 hatching eggs off e-bay and placed them in my incubator. So far 11 have hatched. These babies are SMALL! And fast! They brought a smile to my face. I love to see life renew itself. They are suppose to be tuxido coturnix. The babies so far are in three different colors. Two are all yellow. One has a yellow belly and a black back. The others are brown with a reddish tint on the head and stripes down the body. I welcome what ever colors come out of this hatch. I made a cage out of 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch wire. I am using a chicken feeder and a bird waterer. These guys seem too small for them. Some are pecking at the feed in teh feeder so that is good. Will they hop up on the waterer to take a drink?
