    Update : Added new pic's at bottom


    I ordered some Tibetan's, & got several like this out of the hatch. Not disappointed, kind of anxious to see how they mature.

    Our downstairs bathroom seems to be fairly constant temp. & rarely used with the kids gone; so it's kind of became my hatching/brooding room - hence the sink & mouthwash

    Those are tuxedos! They will come out looking like little penguins. So cute!

    I want some of those! I like those colors, and the one with the stripe around the bottom half of its eye is cool. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies.

    This was my first Coturnix hatch; shipped eggs from Huntsville,Tx & I had about 40% hatch rate, so I was happy.

    Got even more excited when I seen what I thought were Tuxedo's. Now I'm gonna have to start studying the colors.

    4 wks old on 12/9 I hadn't handled them for several days, they've became chubby little birds. When I moved them to clean the brooder this evening they all started making cricket noises. Finally changed their feeder so they'd stop wasting so much feed. Raised their waterer too, hope that helps that situation.
