I was pretty amazed that this white coturnix has been sitting on these eggs and maintaining this nest for the last 10 days. Then I put a few 2 week old Bobwhite chicks in the aviary to get some sun and she is now mothering them AND still sitting on the eggs. Super mom! Trying to figure out how to attach a picture. I did not expect this much mothering from this type of bird.
