These Martian Quail Have A Rich Heritage...



That's right! The second batch of chicks is hatching! These are the ones from Brad at Rich Heritage. They also seem to be a bit better behaved than my first batch. They don't seem to step on eachother as much, nor did they try to play soccer with the rest of the eggs in the incubator. I felt so bad leaving them at home alone. So far there are 11 chicks and at least one more egg with a good sized chip out of it. I'll have another update after I get out of work.









Just a reminder: The contest for the chicken nest box continues Life on a Southern Farm: Chicken Nest Box Giveaway.

Great news! Apparently their parents knew they were hatching today, because they made a mass great escape try this morning!

Congratulations,
Brad
