As quail families go, this is a small family — two chicks and two adults
(the male is not pictured because of his scout position).
This family was probably much larger at one time since the female may lay six to nine eggs.
Snakes and other predators may eat the eggs before they hatch,
and survival doesn’t get much better as little chicks.
