Pretty Little Egg

So the other day I was looking at the Button quail and I noticed this behind the little play box.
So I opened up the cage and took it out and started going all bonkers yelling "The little spotted Button quail layed an egg!"over and over.
I had never even seen a button quail egg before that day!
This is the one who layed the egg. Her name is Spotty.

That's exciting and the egg is so small - I'm glad you put the nickel there for comparison.

We find tiny quail eggs in our year every spring. Some doves have hatched out recently, as well, and one of the fledglings ended up on the ground. I was very proud of Mulligan because he only sniffed it. I put it in an old hanging basket near the nest, and eventually it flew away.

That's cool. We were at the farm supply store the other day and saw some tiny tiny chinese quails...they were about an inch tall and will be 4" when adults. So cute.

Yolanda Ronaldo said...

Yeah they are so cute!

Wow. Wow! This is so cool!

Spotty is a beauty! And that egg is so perfect and tiny!

Are you going to let it hatch?

Thanks for a really neat link for Alphabe-Thursday's letter 'P'.
