    My first ever incubator hatch! One little Painted Button Quail. Please God, let more than one hatch.

    My order from Cackle Hatchery. Speckled Sussex, White Leghorn, and Silver Laced Wyandotte. All alive and well! I was concerned because of the below freezing temperatures when they shipped.

    I'm hatching some Texas A&Ms today, so it's gonna be real exciting! Good luck with your hatch... Btw, what temp/humidity are you using for your quails?

    Did you get any extras with your Cackle order? My order is coming next week and I'm wondering what to expect. Thanks! Congrats!

    What does the green on the yellow ones signify? They're adorable! Did you get anymore quail to hatch? What kind of button quail are they?

    oops! Got so frazzled trying to do everything at once I forgot to subscribe to my own post! [​IMG]

    99.5 temp and about 30%

    No extra chicks with my order.

    Yes, green is for the leghorn roos

    I think at least one more egg is pipped but they are so tiny it's hard to tell.

    Great pics. I got my order from them today. All well and three extras. Everytime I get bantams, they always send about 3 or 4 more of the breed ordered.
