Wing Feathers and Alabama Football

Ma and Big Daddy visited today to watch Alabama Football and take a look at our new covey of Bobwhite Quail. The first thing Big Daddy noticed is that some of them are beginning to get their wing feathers. Now, since our birds are so wild and we want to keep them that way, there's really no way for me to get a good picture of these wing feathers (hmmm, maybe a better camera with a better zoom?). I did find a photo of a Button Quail that shows what the wing feathers look like as they develop.


I found this photo over at That Quail Place. There is a great forum on the site with a lot of helpful breeders.

We enjoyed Ma and Big Daddy's visit and Alabama won - so, it was a good day!
