    Celadon Genetics

    Hey all, Quail question! I am hatching a few coturnix with the celadon (ce) gene currently. They are all hatching out of blue CE eggs. I am aware that not all quail that hatch from a blue egg will lay blue. I know the bird has to have two copies (one from mom and one from dad?) of the CE gene...

    What type of eggs are these!?

    I was out kayaking today and came across a nest! It was super cool. I can’t for the life of me figure out what it belongs to though! The eggs are long and narrow and about the size of a silkie egg, and speckled. The nest was right out in the water, what do you guys think it is??

    Pulp Egg Cartons Online?

    We used to buy 12 count pulp quail egg cartons on Amazon, but they are now unavailable. Where do you get yours? I've tried google searches and only found the plastic clamshells or distributors that sell by the tens of thousands. I even found an old BYC post from 2011 but their suggestions were...

    Goose eating eggs

    I've had a goose sitting on eggs for 35 days. The eggs were due to hatch. My other female goose decided to lay on them too. So both of my geese were laying on the eggs. Last night I went to check on them and saw a baby had pecked a hole in its egg and was ready to hatch. I left it alone. The...

    We have two Embden geese. This is their first year, they started laying in February or March. They look awful. Their feathers are tattered and constantly dirty looking (last year they always looked clean, even when they got into dirty water), their breasts are plucked with a big "V" of down...

    Help with turner

    So incubator turner is not working so i am wondering what's my best option for 5 dozen eggs. Do i try and hand turn them? Or, would putting a piece of 2x4 under one side of the incubator actually work? Place it under one side every couple of hours then alternate to the other side. The one side...

    TL;DR: things are happening! This is Maizie. Maizie is a silkie. Maizie is broody. Not a surprise. I have chicks inside from Cackle that are in isolation after being mailed, as well as 3 incubators of eggs waiting to hatch. Due to my... egg-aquiring opportunities, this will be a staggered...

    Hatching turkey eggs

    Our turkey laid 7 eggs and has been sitting on them now for about 9 days. We estimate that should hatch at the earliest June 1st. My question is, she’s in a chicken yard with 7 other chickens and our Tom. Should we just fence off the area around her or should we remove the chicks as they’re...

    Size for chicken hatching eggs?

    I’m going to do a hatch! I’m collecting my own eggs for the first time ever, and was wondering about the sizes. I’ve got some red hyline layers that are 1 1/2 years old laying 70-100g eggs, I’m keeping the best of the 70-80g ones. My Marans has only been laying for 2 1/2 months, but I really...
