Little Piccolo has been evicted, well partially.
During the day he will be going out into a playpen I set up in one of the aviaries, he will still be sleeping inside at this point.

Reasons for eviction. One, he needs more space, he's getting big and flighty so I need to make sure he won't hurt his head.
Two, his brooder tub is required for his newborn siblings :swoon: Pictures to come.

Also I should be able to properly sex Piccolo soon, so we'll know for sure if he is a he!

Someone said something about their size so I wanted to try and show that. I would have rathered a golf ball, but a tennis ball was the closest I could find.
This one is about five days old. This time around it was only two babies again.

I want to focus on Piccolo for a moment here.
First, I am still new to raising this species of quail, but I believe Piccolo is a little Miss :storkg:
Next some baby photos to compare, including some I didn't share here.
Newly hatched :swoon:
20230106_210902.jpg
20230107_144240.jpg 20230109_114403.jpg
Next is some pictures that show the extent of Piccolo's leg issues.
20230107_215108.jpg 20230107_215123.jpg
Pic hatched with curled toes and a slipped tendon. Slipped tendons are real hard to correct, most breeders (of chickens and quail) won't even try. It was actually recommended I put Piccolo down.
But I am stubborn and was already attached to my first quail baby :unsure1:
So three days after hatch, with me trying really hard to not snap her tooth pick legs, this was Pic :loveshower:
20230109_114521.jpg
This is her today, she has some crooked toes but she can walk (and perch!) and that's a achievement :)
