    Perfectly_Polish hatched this little guy from SamG347's eggs. I stole him
    out of her brooder last time I was at her house. He's a little skittish but
    so friendly for a quail. His crows/calls are so cool. I think he's about 8
    weeks old. He still lives in a guinea pig cage in our living room.

    I need to buy a scale sometime this week. I'll let ya know his weight when I get it.

    I'm assuming he is 8 weeks. I got him from PP on 7/21 and she said he was about
    4 weeks old. He just started his calls this week.

    Quote:I know that's a chicken. Momma used to make chickens like that for dinner. They
    were a different color. We'd go hunting in the park and shoot them when people
    were feeding them from park benches.

    Quote:I hope you enjoy them. They are very different from chickens. We only have the one in the
    picture right now until our eggs hatch next week.

    My momma may have been crazy but she fed us well. You can believe whatever you
    want but that's a chicken in them there pictures. I hope he lays nice eggs for you.
