    Ohhhhh my goooooodness they were so amazing and cute! [​IMG]. I have seen baby chicks, ducklings, and goslings but not quail. They are by far the cutest!

    The kids in school that I mentor helped with turning the eggs, and saw the candling. The incubator was in a classroom. They hatched 2 days ago, but I just saw them today. I instantly fell in love with the teenietinies! I asked the woman who donated the eggs what kind they were, but I was so taken by them I forgot!

    That is all. [​IMG]

  4. It's impressive how small they really are. When your fingers are bigger than future dinner it puts things in perspective.
