    Oh I miss those eggs. They are special. The loss of 10 will be
    mourned but we must celebrate the precious 69.


    Now maybe you might end up with a few of these darling little
    creatures. Can't you just eat them up? Even their poo is cute.

    These are second generation from whatever Sam did. The variations
    between them is amazing but the moms and dads are all close.

    Here is a golden and a runty little guy:

    When PP gave me my first quail I told my wife it was a Spotted Bantam
    chicken. She bought it.
