My button quail hen (Lucy) has gone broody and is sitting on 10 eggs!! Just thought I'd share that with everyone. Lol, Im soo stoaked cause ive read everywhere that getting them to sit on eggs is fairly hard cause they just tend to leave them where they lay them like chooks often do. She laid 21 eggs in total but she was only sitting on 10 of them so I took the other 11 out and put them in my incubator. Considering this is her first time sitting, 10 is quite enough for her.
My little male quail is really attentive and guards her and helps her sit on the eggs at night. He even guards the eggs during the day when she gets off the nest for food though he wont go as far as to sit on them.
Well ne way, thats all for now. Huzzah for Lucy!
