That's why I have pigeons... I can sneak quail eggs under them and they hatch them for me...
I have considered pigeons, but DH and I both agree we just aren't prepared for that bird species.
Also, I may have slipped two more quail eggs in just a few minutes ago. That makes 15. hehehe
Same here. I have several Maran eggs this go around and they are just to dark to see anything. I am a bit concerned with these because they arrived exceptionally dirty this go round, and won't be able to see anything until nearly lock down.
I do have a few duck eggs (not part of this HAL) that I am try to hatch. Only problem is the fertility has been 0% thus far. I have caught one of my drakes "in the act" so I am holding out hope of fertile eggs this go round, but I won't know anything for a few more days.
