Quail Family


The female adult quail is called a hen.
The adult male is called a cock.
A young quail is called a chick.
There were nine chicks in this quail family. The hen usually lays about a dozen eggs.

Quails love our front yard, drought tolerant landscaping–plenty of seeds to eat. The California Valley Quail lives 2-3 years but I can’t tell one family from another.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
