    Hello all.
    I just wanted to show off my 3 week old Coturnix Quail chick.
    It was the only one to hatch from a crushed shipment of eggs.

    Yes,
    I am impressed with how docile Coturnix are, I can hold it and pet it and everything.

    I am hooked on Quail now, I have button quail eggs in the incubator right now and plan on getting more coturnix eggs in the spring.

    Quote:Buttons are adorable and very colorful, ( i own them as well) but my heart belongs to the sweeties (coturnix)! [​IMG] I'm working on getting some nice/neat/intersting colors in the coturnix too. [​IMG]
