    still just rocking...kinda hard to get a still shot of that...

    They are coturnix quail...grrr...start pipping already!!!


    pippin and peepin...and a FREEZE is supposed to go on tonight!! My entire home is not very good in the cold...things tend to go wrong...like the electricity...I'm praying for a GOOD cold snap that does not interfere with my hatch!

    rocking now for over 12 hours...no pip, no sounds, nothin but rocking.
