Over the Easter weekend I made a few modifications to the quail tractor including upgrading the water reservoir from the half gallon coffee can to a 2 gallon bucket, reorienting some doors and adding a loft dust bath area. I transferred the males and a couple of females into a vacant chicken brooder at my parent’s place and moved the newly modified tractor and seven quail hens to our friends’ and their new wards’ house.

|First egg! Our friends sent us this picture on April 20th while we were at Big Bend. That’s just shy of a month since we got the quail putting them at 5-6 weeks old. Now they’re getting 4-7 eggs a day.|
