Baby DD is doing great. She refuses to keep socks on and kicks her blanket off like it's a sport. She's learning to play already. DS is loving every moment of being a big brother.
The quail are laying quite well. I haven't hatched in several months since a newborn has kept homelife busy. I have been thinking about pulling out the incubator soon though. I may shoot for a Leap Year hatch.@BReeder!
How are your quail laying now? Are you still hatching, growing out, & processing them on a reg basis?
My son continues to ask for quail. (I honestly thought he would have forgotten by now.) When the home life here calms down a bit, I'll probably be coming to you. Please keep our family in your prayers. There's a lot going on.
I ended up processing "Mr Nice Guy." I still have one more roo to go but I'm really dragging my feet. The boys get along and are keeping each other warm at night, so I'm delaying the decision for now. I'm also selling 2-3 big orp hens(Glow, Cupcake, & maybe Big Blue). I know they're going to a great home but there's still sadness.

My eggs match their feetMy girls were laying well..... until I got rid of some flock members. Now in response, they went on strike. I was getting 3-5 eggs daily from the bantam coop & now I'm getting ONE. I was getting about 6 eggs from the main coop and now I'm down to 1-2 per day.
This icky, wet weather is flooding the run. I have a few skating rinks and/or muddy, poopy, sand pits depending on the temps. Do the chickens stay where it's dry? NOPE Their feet are disgusting!
