Baby button quail


My little hen Chiclet just hatched 7 babies, with 2 eggs to go! Here are a few pictures. It’s been fun to watch the process! These little guys are so tiny; it’s hard to believe they have a circulatory system!

Papa Hummus is being very helpful, sitting on eggs and chicks as needed. Cagemate and co-mom Henlet is helping out as needed, too.

Enjoy the pictures.
