Oh my so little and so cute to see, How very interesting.
Thanks brother ,love seeing those quail babies.
I'll try to see to it none of the locals send any Ostrige eggs that way :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
When we went to the lake a mother and her 12 babies would walk the driveway every day, up one side in the morning and down the other in the afternoon. They were a couple days old the first day we were there. 2 weeks later they were feathered out and flying some. Newborns are so tiny....James
I jumped two on my farm last week. Get a big net and you can come get them :lol: They sure are cute.
The other little hen was set same day and she is hatching now . I know she has 3 one had 15 eggs and the other had 16 ;)
she hatched 5 so now if I am counting right is 12 they can hid under a leaf and it takes a while to get them counted ;) pictures later on
They sure are cute little things.
