    Here is a picture of the bobwhite quail I hatched for my DH from eggs from Jody & Charlie. I have to admit, I'm quite fond of them. They are so cute, and I love the noises they make already. Can't wait to see what they look like all grown up. [​IMG]

    Nice pick Sara, now just keep an eye on the eye stripe color. females stripe will stay gold and the males stripe will turn white..

    Sara you'l be happy with the butlers as you can tell them apart by the stripe..

    The white ones are a real tough one when it comes time to pick out who is who.
    Took me over 2 months to figure out what the first 15 of them i had. turned out i had 2 females and 13 males``go figure..Gonna go through it again as i got another 17 of them just about full grown and wont be able to do much until next breeding season..
