So, the hatch is done and I have more Pharoahs than Egyptians. Even their website says they breed 95% true, but this is less than 50% two times in a row.

So I kind of want to let them know that something is wrong. Either they don't have what they think/say they have in their breeding pen, or they're putting eggs in the wrong spot when collecting them or something.

I don't want more eggs at this point. I just think they should know. Thoughts on this? Should I tell them or just let it go? If it's happened to me twice, it's got to be happening to other customers too, is the thing.

I sent an email today about having about 14 snowies of 39 hatched. I’m not sure what the response will be, but I’d like to think they want to know so they can go out and get it all sorted. They seem like nice folks, so I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe whoever packs them is not careful.

Okay, so I'm going to send them an email once I work out how I want to phrase it to not sound like a jerk. Again, I don't want them to send me more eggs, I just want them to know that something is going wrong for them somewhere.

Also, I wanted to make sure I was correct with the color genetics, so I posted in my quail genetics groups, and I got confirmation that what I thought was correct, is correct. No way a breeding group of all Egyptians can produce Pharoahs. Even Perry Schofield liked my post, lol.
