    I think he's just chirping like any newly hatched chick would. My most recent hatch, all of my chicks chirped just like that, so hopefully, the "chirping chick is a roo" theory is incorrect.

    Hi, I am pretty sure the chick is actually crowing as a male quail would, just heard him doing it again a minute ago, as clear as day! most unusual, I have hatched many quail before and yes they chirp but this one is actually doing the crow but on a smaller scale lol!
