button quail chicks

The button babies are hatching!

The temperature swings appear to have caused some issues in that I had one baby hatch out at day 15 (that one didn’t make it and had obvious problems). 14 had hatched between day 16 and day 17 and 5 more between day 17 and 18 for a total of 19 healthy button quail.

It just goes to show that it is worth waiting a couple of extra days before tossing eggs. I also ended up with 16 healthy coturnix quail from this hatch.
