we have had some excitement this morning! we've had in the incubator king quail eggs, six of them in total however only one has developed. He's a pied King quail. I've dubbed him Soldier Peep, he is very brave. My other half had to get him out of the egg as it had been too long and for some reason he hadn't turned himself properly in the egg to be able to eat the membraine and get himself out. We wouldn't normally intervene however we had felt the need to this time as it had just been too long. We could hear him peep in the egg.
Here he is in the egg getting a hand out from my other half
Here he is dried with a hair dryer gently
he's looking quite well, he's in the incubator keeping warm. We cross our fingers for you little Soldier Peep!
