    In the 45 minutes between us looking into the bator checking, 2 pipped and hatched.They are sooo impossibly tiny! So peppy and determined too!
    I hope others hatch soon so I can see them. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Congrats!!!! I'm just getting my bator ready to try button quail eggs (first EVER eggs). Temp is on its way up but humidity is 76%. Too high, right?

    Congrats on the chicks! I hatched out two of my own eggs a month ago, and I'm getting 20 more Tuesday. Can't wait!

    OK- I just X'd out and had to start all over again...
    here are pics of the Buttons- we cheated and held them already, we just couldn't resist holding their tiny little, almost weightless, bodies in our hands!

    They are the cutest [​IMG] and tiniest [​IMG] little things I have ever seen! SOO adorable!!! [​IMG]

    What will you do with them when they are older? Do people generally just keep them as pets?
