    So far my babies are doing great! They are eating, drinking, and pooping like crazy. I can't believe how big they have got, and that they are starting to feather out already. I guess I really don't have a point to this post, but wanted to share my excitement.

    Hope they look as good to you as they do to me!

    Thanks for sharing. I didn't know how fast quail get their feathers. They are beautiful. [​IMG]
