I'm hatching Texas A&M Whites and they are brown, don't know what he gave me in the extra's have a feeling they are buttons. 3 out of 110 are out now. my humidity is at 70. Had to put a small sponge in there to get it that high though. I hope he didn't give me all browns.
OK, it may be they are getting ready to break out. All of a sudden on mine, the top pops up out it tumbles and the top comes down. One shell top stayed up. Hope they don't knock it off, I want to make a xmas ornament from it.
My first two are pretty well dry now, I think they may be Tibetan's, have the light coloring along and behind the eye. But they are all supposed to be A&M's
This is my first time with quail, also. I have read on here that they don't always eat the first day.
But being so small they need to go into the brooder at 12-24 hours. Spread food on paper towels and they'll peck at it. I plan to beak one or two in the water then let them be. Mine are trying to peck just out of the egg, so I know they won't have a problem.
If I'd have known they were so darn't cute I'd of had them years ago. Maybe before the chickens, definately before the ducks.
