    MJ is doing a diary on the famous PC eggies, and I have so many in my bator right now I thought I'd do one on mine as well because of the cutness factor of it all.... (plus I just love talking coturnix)! [​IMG]

    So first things first....PICTURES....

    These are eggs just from one breeder, below it is over 30 RIR hatching eggs (im not keeping them, selling them to friends who will resale them because they get more customers than I do lol.....I will be buying 100+ more RIR and GC eggs to add to this too [​IMG] then on the upper shelf theres a cochin that just pipped a few hours ago, and seramas and duccles due in a few days...the cochin that pipped is 3 days early! LOL! Oh and thees like 2-3 eggs from my tux roo Panda and my hen Rosie. [​IMG]

    This is Greenie egg:

    This is Powder egg (theres actually a few of these and this isnt really anything neat i see it a lot from other breeders eggs so far not from my own...but I like them lol:
    [​IMG]

    ANd this is waxy egg (i think theres a few of these too):
    [​IMG]


    Theres also 12 button quail eggs from her these are tossed in freebees i didnt knwo about until they were in teh mail LOL! Not plannin on keeping them dont have cages or the pacience lol! (you can see them in the carton in the first picture.

    I will update this post prob when they hatch [​IMG] I ordered the assortment, so I will get A & Ms, Tuxedos, Tibes, Goldens, and probably anything else that woman has bought since I last bought from her [​IMG] (hoping to get lucky with some chocolates). [​IMG]

    Do the powder and waxy eggs have the same chance of hatching as the normals? I've never seen those before. Pretty neat.

    Monarc, I am so jealous!

    I've got coturnix eggs in the 'bator right now, and I am just itching for them to hatch.

    I'd love to hatch out all sorts of things, but I'm in the middle of suburbia *sigh*. It must be nice to have them staggered like that.

    Good luck with your quail hatch! Hope it turns out well!

    Quote:It is seriously a spoiled feeling being able to do staggered hatches and not having any problems doing it. I am sooo happy with this incubator and to think it's 70 years old it's my grandpa! LOL!
