Quail bet results and quail chick video

We can’t say the hatch results were stellar, but they are what they are. So in total we had six chicks hatch which means RP & BT were the closest, and as a result, the winners. Congrats! Your winnings are on their way. As a consolation prize for all the losers (we’re in that boat too), a video of the week old quail chicks. (0:16 is the best part)

Quail Hatching Results

To keep track of who is in the lead/how many have hatched, we’ll be updating the list below. To answer a couple of people’s questions, we will not unplug the incubator once we have reached your number.

Button Quail Prizes

To add to the fun, the winners of the quail bets will also receive a dozen quail eggs (for eating, not hatching) and their choice of either a bottle of home-made Irish cream liqueur or 6 bottles of home-made stout on top of the cash takings.

With hatching to begin in a week, there isn’t much time left to get in on the wagering!

Quail Hatch Wagers

***8 chicks in total hatched, leaving J with the pot of $34!

In the spirit of good fun & some fortune, we started a little Quail Hatching Pool. 18 days ago I placed 22 eggs into the incubator that our first batch of quails laid. With there being no way of telling whether the eggs were fertile on day one, we decided to let other people in on the mystery. For $2, punters could place a bet on the number of chicks that would successfully hatch, and the winner would take all.

Below are the wagers, the punters, and the leader. We’ll update this page often with results as they come in. As quail can hatch over a number of days, we won’t close the competition until Saturday morning. I used initials to maintain privacy for all of us.
