    I have Buttons and Coturnix in the bator that are all due tomorrow. So far the Buttons are ahead of the Coturnix! I'll post pics when some of them pop out!! These are the first quail I've hatched (well, as an adult), so I'm soooo excited! [​IMG]

  2. Sounds like your having fun!!! Are you using homemade incubator, or bought? I have been toying with the ideal of trying to make an incubator.

    I hope you have a good hatch,
    I just had 10 button quail hatch Friday but 1 died today.

    I still have 9 healthy chicks plus a couple of three week old buttons from another hatch.

    it's real fun to hatch them [​IMG]
