Photo Hunt: Theme Small

Quail eggs are very small and the quail that hatched out of these tiny eggs recently are the smallest animal I have had to look after.

The quail egg is about one fifth the size of an ordinary chicken egg.

Small day old quail chicks.The chicks that hatches out from these eggs are about the size of a bumble bee.

Although these chicks are extremely small at the start of their life, their development occurrs very quickly and within 6 weeks the hens start to lay their eggs.
