Quail: First Hatch

Continuing in my quail husbandry experiment I decided it was time to hatch some quail on my own I was also having a difficult time sourcing quail locally. I ordered an egg incubator and since I processed all of my roosters several months ago I had to order some fertilized quail eggs online.

The fertilized eggs arrived a day after the incubator. Ironically, there were shipped from a town less than twenty miles from where we live.
