    Quote:Really? I'll send you 10. I only have 34 after that hatch I had from Sam's eggs.
    They are fun little birds but nothing like chickens. My Leghorn's eggs are bigger
    than that 3 week old little girl. She's a girl cause she has a speckled chest.

    In your "neck of the woods" you can hatch quail and fill your fields with them.
    They are a wild bird and can fly, or hop. [​IMG]
