APRIL CHILD ABUSE AWARENESS MONTH
April is Child Abuse Awareness month. It is heartbreaking to know that so many children die daily because of child abuse. In 2020, In Alabama alone, 21 sweet, helpless, innocent children died due to child abuse. It is MURDER!! How could anyone, anywhere harm a child? What have they done? That is just it, nothing. They are beaten, shaken, and tossed away like trash to take their last breath. Some are beaten beyond recognition. There is no reason for this whatsoever. If we don't take a stand, and be their voice, who is? If you think someone is being abused, say something!! You could be the only one speaking for them. Please contact the proper authorities and save a life!!
how many days does it take to hatch baby quail?
We decided to try our hand at hatching out some baby quail for educational purposes. The excitement was an understatement to say the least. Did you know it takes 18 days for a quail to hatch? We came in on Monday, March 1st, to these sweet little babies running around in the incubator. As soon as their little feathers dried, we put them in the brooder box with their heat lamp and they are so healthy. They are eating and drinking water as they should. stay tuned for more pictures.
