    Just standing in the wash room watching these little boogers poppin' out......I'm still amazed everytime one of these little honker-heads pop out of its shell. For the life of me, in every case, it looks like that little booger was not supposed to fit inside that shell...........and even moreso...........able to have enough room to rare that head back and peck him a zipper perfectly around the top of that egg, and push it open. There have been numerous folks come over here to watch the process. It's something every kid should be able to watch (well heck, adults too for that matter). Mother Nature.......she never rests.

    It is extremely amazing! And I think this true "miracle" is what is so addicting! It is the setting of a simple set of eggs, waiting all those days, and then...a tiny baby zips out, all by itself, nobody telling it how to do it. The baby manages to grow in the egg and make it into the world. And the cuteness factor after they all dry off just warms the heart. [​IMG]

    Agreed! I love hatching days! I have a bunch of coturnix about to hatch soon (like on Monday/Tuesday) and I can't wait to watch! For some reason the quail are more fun to watch than the chickens. I think it's because they usually zip so perfect and round! [​IMG] I ordered some quail rails for my turner and I can't wait to get eggs in as soon as this hatch goes in the brooder! Can you say addicted? Haha!
