Feather your Nest Friday, 19th August, 2022.
After being away last week I did some catching up. I was only home a day when Quail started hatching and over three days I got seventeen chicks!
The secret to a good hatch rate is not wanting them all to hatch! I had so many eggs I was wondering what I would do if they all were successful! I was back to watching eggs wobbling. I find it absolutely impossible not to look every five minutes!
In the mornings I would run out to see how many babies arrived overnight. I would lift the lid to find another few.
