The new additions to our menagerie

A couple of weeks ago some quail eggs arrived from Ebay, so we popped them into our incubator for a couple of weeks, and 17 days later, these little dudes appeared. Out of a dozen eggs we had 7 of the little fellas hatch, not bad for a first go. Needless to say our kids have loved the whole process, and love the chicks. We’re hoping in about 6-8 weeks they will start laying, and we’ll have a source of our own fresh quail eggs for summer salads.

 

 

New additions to the family.

We love this time of year, new life and all that, and it’s something we really believe in our children having a good understanding of. The last couple of years we have hatched ducks in our incubator and it’s been such fun.

This year we decided to ring the changes and hatch a dozen quail, the eggs as usual are from ebay, we’ve had pretty good results so far.

My son, is very excited and couldn’t wait to pop them in the incubator, and then make a little wish that they all hatch safely, with a kiss goodnight.

So in approximately 16 days we should have some baby quail, and a further 6-8 weeks after that lots of quail eggs for recipes……I’m thinking mini scotch eggs.
