    Yeah, the other two are buds. The baby is an interloper.

    If we were closer I'd give you a quail to put with the latest baby.

    Yes, the baby is an interloper. Thanks, that is a kind gesture!

    That might be something to think about having around since you're working with eggs that are hit and miss for hatching. The Quail really are laid back and make excellent companions.

    Too bad you don't have a broody hen to give the chick to. I have two serama; each with just one chick.

    That was one of the benefits of some of my Silkies, even if they hadn't been broody they were very willing to accept fostering a chick or chicks.

    Maybe I will hatch some Quail again in the Spring.
