    It looks like quail ballet but they are actually fleeing from being cornered as I move the camera closer in to the hutch [​IMG]

    Shh...let's just keep thinking it is quail ballet.....

    thats just a great picture... they do seem to take FOREVER to mature.. espec. when you raise cots more than anything and then hatch a bunch of bobs. whew they seem slowww but very rewarding once matured and laying.. very pretty birds. yours look to be all males maybe a hen.
