Hi everyone I live in S. Florida and I have button quails. I really need lots of advice and love the homey warm feeling of these forums. And I found out information I needed like take the eggs out everyday. Plus on youtube how to tell if they have chicks in them.
I can't tell who is laying eggs and I know it takes 5 or 6 of them to make one chicken egg. I am an accidental owner my granddaughter had one then moved, and recently I felt sorry for my little girl....crying....ahahaha it was a boy, so I purchased 3 girls for him.
Funny one of the girls seems like the boss apple sauce not him. I am not seeking to breed them I just wanted to make my bird not feel so lonely. However I do want to try the eggs and don't want to get sick doing it.
So I am wondering if taking them out everyday and refrigerating them, how long are they good in refrigerator? As I need to collect many to make eggs for my husband and I.
I feed them meal worms, finch food, and I cooked chicken eggs for them for the calcium I read that I could cook the eggs for 20 mins at 200 degree to sterilize them and use them for calcium for the eggs.
My name is Adreanna
