They're adorable! Did you hatch them? I have 14 Coturnix eggs that I put in the 'bator yesterday and am hoping they're as easy to hatch as everyone says...

yea these babies were hatched here at the house -- I have the parent flock to the buttons so I am never without a fresh supply of button eggs LOL

( really need to start selling some eggs LOL )

the coturnix are from a flock of birds I hatched here at home and donated to the zoo - I was able to collect 6 eggs and bring them home 5 of the 6 hatched with one being a quitter

I have a small flock of coturnix here 1 male 3 females I slipped an egg from them in the bator at same time but it turned out to be a quitter

but I will try again with eggs from my own coturnix


the coturnix are super easy to hatch !! they pip - zip - and hatch so FAST !! and always hatch at least 2 at a time -- i LOVE LOVE hatching buttons and coturnix never a dull moment in the bator with them LOL

I can't see the strip color if it is yellow they are golden pearl is it is reddish they are wild. Niki is right the black one is a blue face. If they are yellow with dark strips they are red breasted.
