Overnight

Unfortunately one of our little red cap chicks didn't make it through the night.

It always sucks to lose a baby chick but the trip yesterday was hard on even the strongest chicks, from the states to picton to ashburn is quite a long trip.

If I was thinking at all I would have mixed up some of that high protein bird food that we were feeding (syringing) the quail when they were born. I mixed some up this morning and fed it to the other red cap chick as it still doesn't look as peppy as the other one. Weird that my two weakest birds were the same breed.
