So all year I've had my little flock of 9 silkies...now I have my 11 mm chicks, 9 ducklings, 2 goslings and the 6 chicks I hatched on monday....AND now I have 24 eggs due to hatch tomorrow...27 more hatching monday....30 chicks from welp shipping next week...24 button quail, 8 Serama & more silkies hatching next Saturday....
And now I sit here wondering how in the world I got here??? ROTFL

I ask myself the same thing. I started last summer with 6 little silkies and my DH swears that I now have 200 with the chicks I just can't stop hatching!!!

It's those darn silkies!! They sucked me right into the dark underworld of poultry! I never saw this coming... I don't think I ever looked twice at a chicken before I saw silkies...now I think every chicken is beautiful
And now that I started hatching eggs....I'm afraid I'm really doomed!

I've never had quail before...so I'm not sure how it will go...I just think my daughter (ok..me too) will get a kick out of seeing those tiny buttons hatch..they say they're only the size of a bumblebee when they hatch!

Quail are especially fun to incubate and hatch. I definetely enjoy hatching them (they live in my house, some of their mating calls are a little weird sounding, though I do enjoy the Bobwhites call.)
