Culled a Bunch of Birds

We culled a dozen birds last night.  We had to make room for the younger birds in the main cages and slay most of the males from the latest hatch.

About half of the younger birds were males, which is nice.  The last few hatches seemed to have many more males than females.  Luck of the draw I guess.  A few of these males are lucky enough to live on and procreate – the biggest and best looking.  The rest are going on the grill soon.

The next step is to get a bunch of new chicks hatched!  We’re going away later this week to celebrate Jenny’s birthday with her family in Iowa, so the following week I’ll start collecting eggs for incubation.

I’m thinking of doing a video series on the life of a quail, from egg to mature bird.  Sounds fun.
