    candling on lockdown, what to do with non-developed eggs

    I've been giving my dogs button eggs. I only have 1 hen laying right now. So every 3 days I give the dogs (3 dogs) a raw egg as a treat. I swear they are learning to count and sit and stare are my on the 3rd day. LOL!

    Valentines day Hatch-along???

    Now why didn't I think of that! Great one bfrancis! Boy it's bad when someone hands you 4 little eggs, and all you can think of is firing up an incubator and throwing them in.

    candling on lockdown, what to do with non-developed eggs

    Toss it Mibotsu.... Not worth getting your dogs sick. I'm sure after that many days at 100 it's full of bacteria. If it's something I wouldn't eat, I wouldn't give it to my dogs. :) If others do and dogs aren't getting sick, I'd say luck which is always subject to change.

    ROFL!!! Well, I do need another one! LOL! So will start saving pennies. ;) It has a great view of the eggs too! I love my 1588, but I've always had a hard time seeing the temp, needing glasses and the bator sits in kinda a dark corner. Had to almost stand on my head to read it! LOL!

    Feedstore day old quail vs. hatching eggs?

    How long do they continue to grow? At what age is a good time to weigh to determine if they are jumbo?

    Tikka is in Cananda, so shipping would be more. I don't know how the retail would be compared.

    I love mine! Just got done with 4 hatches in a row. Very little fuss. Water/humidity holds good and comes back up fast after opening it. It was well worth every penny. I also love the big window to watch hatches. Plug it in, add a little water.. little to no fuss.

    Quail pen idea...

    I think the barrel would be easy to clean and sanitize, no splinters, easy to move around, no warping , For me personally, I would rather use a barrel for some of the reasons stated. Also for someone like me without a lot of room and tools, would be easy to put together.

    What breed are these?

    Not the ones I've hatched. My last hatch of A & M's , Rosetta and Tibettan were all about the same. I think it's more of a growth down the road that starts to show the difference. And with my Jumbo brown mixed in the hatch, I really didn't see much diff. between them and the others. They...
