Feather your Nest Friday, 17th June, 2020.
You better make a cup of tea, I think this is going to be long!
It seems a month since last Friday. The saying "watch pot never boils' applies to other things, in this case watching Quail eggs wobble makes them take forever to hatch! Also as they wobbled more and more I couldn't stop watching! It was so exciting and kind of mesmerising. Finally two chicks hatched on Saturday. Sunday I had three more and Monday I had one more. It felt hard to get anything done as I just had to look at them! When the first one hatched I went from excited to worried about keeping them alive. They are so small!
I am really glad I hatched regular chicks first. As these hatched I knew to leave them in the incubator and dry off completely so I left them for at least 12 hours.
When they dried I could see that each one was entirely different!
