I bought six Coturnix chicks (various colors) at a swap, about a month ago. They've been living in the brooder in my office, since then. DH has been working insane hours, so he hasn't been able to build permanent housing, yet.

I've figured out that one of my Goldens is a male, and the other is female. My "wild" appears to be a hen, too. The A&M and the two Tibetans - no clue.

I was checking CL and Freecycle for materials, last night, and got my first "Koh-Turrrrrnix!" Actually, it was more of a "Cough-Ter-Whattheheckwasthat????" Of course, I didn't see who did it.

I am smitten, though.

My young males are startin to do it too.
I kinda like it, not too loud or annoying.
Kinda just blends into the background.

When you see em do it, they stand up straight and stratch their necks and kinda wiggle, pretty funny like a mini rooster.

I love that sound, especially in the evenings for some reason. I can hear mine from the front porch, it blends right in with all the wild bird sounds.
