Baby Quail!

Free roaming bobwhite quail located in the Conservatory at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher nested this Spring and we now have offspring. Two quail hatched on May 29. They're in an incubator to maintain their boby heat while they get a little bigger, as they're still wobbly on their feet. About sixteen more eggs are incubating, however, not all are viable.
