I am so excited! After searching for over a year I found a drake I can start really moving forward with! A nice sized boy from Holderreads, that I was able to purchased locally from a lovely farming couple. Mission accomplished! Introducing.... Mr. Handsome. Please pardon his grumpy expression he was quite clear with our heeler that she was not welcome to come sniffing around.
So after a rough month here we have decided to let go of our quail. I have realized I am currently too busy raising humans to keep up with an incubator and brooder full of yummy quail. ;) We are sad to see our progress go into someone else's hands, but we needed to let go of the work, and are happy someone felt ready to take it on. They are already settled in at their new place. And I hope they are enjoyed there, as we enjoyed them. If I hear of them being offered publicly I will ask if we can share here how to contact the current breeders.
Have a great day!
