We got quails!
After a short two weeks in the 'bator, the quail eggs started popping like popcorn.
So what does fate hold for these little guys?
Since we had a number of adults disappear on us, we will be using a lot of the females from this group to restore our numbers. The males will probably end up as food.
Unfortunately since the law considers quail to be game birds instead of poultry, we cannot legally sell them for human consumption. Luckily, there is a good market for exotic meats for raw cat and dog food in our area so any extra males will be processed and sold for healthy, natural pet food.
ETA: Here is a little video I took on my phone of the day old babies. Everything looks red because the are under an infrared heat lamp.
