54 Chicks in the Brooder!

They are as cute as can be, and much happier now that they have food, water and space to run around. We had hoped for a better hatch but are happy with these and with the "hands on" education that these little birds are giving us.

The weather won't be getting as cold the next few nights so that is a relief, since keeping a box at 100 degrees in 40 degree weather is pretty difficult. One thing we decided tonight is that we are glad that we began our quail effort during the most difficult season (one that we will probably avoid next year) - we will really appreciate those easier months next Spring and Summer!
