    My first hatch of buttons and I can’t believe how cute they are.
    All running around and then they go from 100 to 0 and fall asleep in one pile or in the food dish eating. One will call out and there all back at it. The runt I was afraid for (last to hatch) is the boldest one so I have hopes for it.
    They even act like they care for each other, one fell over in the water dish full of marbles and others came to help. After trying to knock him to his feet one grabbed his little wing and pulled it across the marbles to safety.

    Now to find eggs for JUMBO COTURNIX.
    I can see how this can be kind of addicting.[​IMG]

    I just hope I don’t end up getting asked to be on that show Hoarders. My kids already think I’m nuts but 2 of my grandchildren got to see eggs hatch and are in love with my rabbits so in their eyes I’m the greatest grandma.[​IMG]

    I'm just getting adult button quail on the 4th. If I find someone willing to take the chicks I might hatch some for a little summer project!
