With pigeons, a dog and a fish tank, we clearly didn’t have enough animals at our house… My brother-in-law kindly offered us button-quail chicks as a healthy addition.

The children are facinated as am I.  I couldn’t believe how tiny they are.  What’s amazing is they eat independently and behave exactly like mini hens…  Look at the 50 fils coin for scale!


  1. I’d rather look at your hand since I have no idea about fils. Looks like a quarter to me 😉

  2. 50 fils is more or less the size of a quarter 🙂

  5. ” C..U…T…E!!”, says my younger son! 🙂 and lovely photograph too, yet again.
    just two days back, had our first batch of baby guppies after a long wait, and was it exciting! 🙂 so could well imagine the childish excitiment that seems to catch on, each time a new addition or the next generation is ‘churned’ out! 🙂

    🙂 They’re in a small aquarium which makes it a little easier.
