    And I welcomed 2 new fuzzy button quail into the world tonight! They must have known I would need the hatcher thursday night!!! 2 more eggs left to go... But doubtful they will hatch since this batch had a rough start... The bator got knocked over terribly and all the eggs bounced across the room... Surprised these 2 made it out of 7... 3 BROKE when it got knocked, and so, thursday night will come and if they haven't pipped I shall crack them open. But WELCOME LIL ONES!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
