    I only had them for about 2 weeks. and they just got paired up then. They are very loving together. They are young birds I believe only about 12 weeks. These will be my first Quail eggs. I've raised one clutch of duck eggs, one clutch of love bird eggs, one clutch of parakeets, and several zebra finch in the past. Or should I say the parent birds did. Except for the love bird I had to hand feed form a fresh hatch mom would not feed. That was several years back. Hope she sits. We'll see.[​IMG]

    They are beautiful, I especially like the silver tux! They should make some beautiful tux babies!

    That's the male. How many eggs do they usually lay. There was another one tonight that's 3 total so far.
