Baby Quail

These are a couple of the new baby quail Wes just hatched out. No he hasn't been sitting on a nest... though the thought makes me laugh! When we first moved out to our property, Wes had the idea of raising quail... not for food or even to sell. His intentions have been to raise quail to a certain age and then let them go to see if they will raise wild around here. They use to be very common in this area, but thanks to fire ants and other wild things, they are a rare find. Wes built a pen for them and there are a few that we keep in there to lay eggs. The eggs go in an incubator and then wa-la... baby quail.
