So after the culling of two quail, the loss of one to the dog, and a few escaping every time I open the coop door… There is some good news that made it all worth it: We got our first quail egg!
Tiniest little egg I did ever see and gosh, the speckled shell is amazing to look at. I wonder if I could make some super cool crafts with these… Outside of delicious hard-boiled eggs and baked goods. I lost another 5 birds over the weekend and decided to just crop out this year and consider purchasing more chicks next spring. But that will also depend on how the year ends.
Be kind and tender to one another.
