    i have a routine each morning of checking on everyone and making sure everyone is ok and has what they need. and i couldnt believe what i found in the quail pen! one of my young quails finally matured enough to lay a egg! its the first for me! im so excited about it! its a little speckled thing lol. has a nice shape to it. now im wonderin if its fertile. *thinks to self "hmm should i put it in the bator or not?"



    heres a few pics! sorry im so slow my comp is not awake yet lol.
