More quails!

The last time I posted here, I said that Ken had trouble breeding these little birds in the past.  Well, he must have got a winner with this little hen - she is the same one who had the chickens back in March this year.  She has been sitting on 9 eggs, and two weeks ago, five of them hatched and are still alive and healthy.   She is such a good little mother - even though they are twice the size they were when they hatched, she can still fit them all under her wings when they run to her for warmth and protection.
