    Ended up with 11 babies in all. [​IMG] I have to attribute the success mainly to Hot2Pot's great packing techniques. Thanks H2P!

    I have dark brown with stripes, light brown and stripes, yellow with stripes, and solid brown backs with yellow bellies. I am trying to guess what colors they will be. Will the yellow in middle picture be whites? I got 2 of those. Is the one in the last picture a tuxedo? I have 3 of those. Dang, I just can't believe I now belong to the elite society of quail owners. Been trying to practice drinking tea with my pinkie sticking out, but keep sticking it up my nose! [​IMG]

    I don't see any whites in your pictures, but that's OK!
    Looks like a good mix of colors, and congrats on your hatch [​IMG]

    They look great! How'd the little guy with the jacked up feet/legs end up doing? And to think you didn't think your first one was going to have any friends...eleven sounds like lots of friends to me.

    If you got to drink tea with little finger extended to own quail....somebody better come get all mine, 'cause that's never gonna happen! [​IMG] [​IMG] Being an old Army Chief Warrant Officer, its a big mug of coffee here...big enough it takes all my fingers to hold the mug! [​IMG]

    Mine has already doubled in size. All they do it eat and poop. I have had to change out their bedding everyday and 10 minutes later you can't tell I did it.

    Right now mine sound like somebody is pecking on a teeny tiny typewriter, so it must be chow time. I have two little coke bottle lids in there as drinking pots. It is just the right size for them. They sure do empty them in a hurry though. Might have to go up to a Skoal can or something.

    So the yellows are golden. Huh, who'd a guessed? HA! Some tuxedos and browns. That is cool. I'm guessing the whites must come out white.

    BFrancis, I'm glad I don't have to pinkie drink to be a quail man. [​IMG] The one that had messed up legs didn't make it. The last two were taking so long to hatch I figured they would be wore out too, so I hatched them out myself. They are doing fine.

    Whites come out butter yellow with sometimes a spot of brown on the very top of their heads. Sometimes they develop a brown spot on their backs or butts too.

    Congrats on your hatch! A nice variety there!

    It's too bad the little one with crooked feet didn't make it. I was rooting for him. I had one like that (pipped on the wrong end and I eventually helped him). Mine straightened out in a couple of hours. It's good to know what to do if I should get another chick like that!
