    Finally!

    one just hatched 10 minutes ago!!! [​IMG]

    Thank the Lord cuz it's a day overdue and I was feeling like a complete failure!!!

    (unfortunately I woke up my son that works midnight shift by squealing - but hey he'll get over it!!)

    20 to go but I'm elated with one!!!!

    That little bugger zipped and hatched so fast I nearly missed it! [​IMG]

    I used to raise coturnix quail, and buttons are even smaller, if I remember correctly. When my chicks hatched the other day, they were huge compared to my quail. Congrats:cool:
