    I started w/ 15 of my own eggs. When I put them into lockdown 2 were rotten, down to 13. Well two days before my 1st batch was due the electricity went off for two hours, I had to bring my eggs in by the fire. When hatch day finally came....nothing hatched...they were suppost to hatch Tuesday..they didn't hatch until Thursday Morning, early. Around 1:00 Thursday Morning I had just finished saying my prayers and I asked God to let the baby buttons hatch and then I checked on the incubater before I went to bed....a button had hatched! [​IMG] I was thrilled and when I woke up the next morning..here is what I found...

    Beautiful! I want to hatch a few to keep in the class, I haven't had Buttons in quite awhile.

    Your pics are so cute! The first pics you posted with the aquarium all set up- I was looking so hard for some button quail in the tank and said to myself, "Gosh those button quail are really small, but I don't think they are THAT small (that I can't see them)!"

    So I scrolled down and saw that those were indeed your setup pics. [​IMG]

    My favorite is Sleepy- how cute they all are though!

    Buttercup Chillin - Thanks, Cricket is a Cinnamon. ( Mostly likely a hen, never had a male Cinnamon. )

    WriterofWords - You should get some! They're a fun "Hobby"

    ChickensAreSweet - I think I sort of confused people w/ what I wrote.... [​IMG]


    GammaPoppyLilyFlutter - Thanks Gamma! [​IMG] Did any of your babies ever hatch? I never did really catch up on the thread - [​IMG]
