    picture on the way! I gotta rummage it up i have a pic of coturnix (it's said "Co-tur-nix" it's easy to learn the spelling once you know how to pronounce it [​IMG]).


    There is one button quail chick in with these babies, the button quail chick is a few days older than these newborn coturnix quail. The button quail is the one without stripes dark and looking at the camera.

    I have a button next to a lightbulb, but I don't have pics of the coturnix, and, I'm too tired to snap shots of them. At least I can provide the button. [​IMG]
