Newborn Japanese Quails

Susan and I had the great opportunity to photograph some newborn Japanese quails at Stockton College. Guy Barbato, a visiting professor of biology, was conducting research to find out if the chicks can hear each other’s chirps from within their shells, and if those sounds play a part in synchronized hatching. John Rokita, who oversees Stockton’s animal lab, is caring for the hatchlings. He was kind enough to allow us to grab these images before the newborns grew too big for the camera.
