    You end up with babies!!!!

    Hubby went to check on their food and water after I went to bed last night and we have hatchlings! I am waiting for it to get light enough to check. I knew they loved their new pen with all the hay to root through, the fun hiding places, the plants, etc... but I didn't know they managed to pull off hatching chicks!!!

    Ok...forgot to keep 2 things in mind.

    1) hubby is a city boy at heart
    2) he is blonde

    Our "baby quail" was actually a baby sparrow that left the nest too early. It was dead when I went out there. [​IMG]

    So I guess the lesson is create a more nature setting and nature shows up for a free meal!
