I'll take sexing opinions just for old-time's sake!
Aren't they absolute dawl babies!!
How adorable!! I just love Bob babies!! How old are they Missi, as I am trying to figure out who is a male and who is a female. I think I might see MAYBE 2 females in there. It is hard to tell with the camera light.
Great looking babies!!!!
Edit to add: The one standing by the food dish alone, looks like a she to me. The one you are holding looks like a cute boy. And I think I see another girl in there somewhere. If you do have 2 pair, that would be perfect!! Although somebody will be the odd one out.
This morning I treated them to spring greens & orange quarters
Quote:Awwwee Thank you!! Good to know from those more familiar with bobs that they are looking good & healthy! The camera flash does throw off the colors some but I try to correct that in Photoshop so they look as similar to their actual coloring as possible, though I did these quickly because I was excited to get them up here to show y'all
Such gorgeous photos and beautiful birds!
Quote:Oh, what a nice comment from my mentor
Missi, make sure to offer them a place to get off the wire if they need to so that they can give their feet a rest. A dusting pan with dirt or sand will be dual purpose addition, giving them a place to bathe and get off the wire.
Quote:Thanks for the reminder! I'll be adding a dust/sand pan this weekend. Originally, I dumped pine shavings on top of the wire but they didn't stay there for long I'll be adding a shelter this weekend, as well. Going to place straw in it for a nice little cozy hide.
they look great, i've been wanting to get some bobs, but i guess i'll wait till next season now(wife is already like what where all these quail coming from lol)
