    Up for auction: 15+++ Coturnix quail test eggs... they are fertile!!! ^_^

    There is a new method of storing eggs before they are shipped that very few people know about. What happens is the eggs are put through heating and cooling cycles to kick-start the embryos, then preserve the progress. Once the heatings and coolings are done, they are quickly taken to below room temperature , cooled, stored, or packed and shipped.

    This new process (called heat-treating) starts the embryo's development. A Canadian study shows that an embryo needs to be developed to a certain stage before it can successfully be stored or shipped. This does exactly that. In tests conducted, the hatchability increases 50% or more than normal. This means 20-30% more saleable females! That is pretty amazing, considering the average mail-order-egg hatching success is 50%!

    We can provide pictures and temperatures of every step along the way, just contact us!

    Please contact me if you want more info on this new method... it improves hatchability DRAMATICALLY

    What are Coturnix Quail good for?

    Meat, eggs, dog training, showing, pets, hunting, the list never ends!

    When are they ready to eat/lay?

    They mature to eat in 8 weeks, to fly for dogs in 6 weeks, and females lay at about 7.5-8 weeks.

    How many eggs do they lay?

    Females normally lay 1 egg a day for about year, then the production drops off.

    Are they normal eggs? Like, can I eat them?

    Yes, and they are very good for you! Better than chicken eggs! Click here: http://geniuscook.com/quail-eggs/ for more info

    How are they shipped?

    Eggs are shipped USPS Priority in a square box. It will have FRAGILE and LIVE EMBRYOS all over it, and won't be shipped flat rate because the service is better.

    What colors are included?

    Brown (Item picture above), Tibetan (Background second picture), and Golden (foreground first picture). If you want, you can request certain colors using the notes section of Paypal

    How do these eggs turn into baby quail?

    You incubate them at 99.5* for about 17 days in an incubator. *IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN INCUBATOR, YOU MAY NOT WANT TO PURCHASE THESE EGGS!*

    I have another question.

    Ask it! Or email me directly at [email protected]

    I also include a sheet in every box with incubation/care instructions if you need them.

    These egg are about $0.63 cents apiece with FREE shipping!

    Compare that to other auctions that are $3.00 with 12.00 shipping. The eggs are $1.00 a piece! Wow, that's quite the difference!

    Some fine print:

    OUR GUARANTEE: Yes, we offer a guarantee on our eggs! If, for whatever reason, half of the eggs are broken when you get them, we will replace the eggs for the shipping cost. If at least half of the eggs are broken during shipping, you must get a postal worker to sign a letter stating so, and also get a picture and email it to me. This guarantee does not include the replacement eggs that are lost, stolen, or returned to me.

    It also does not guarantee that you will win at shows with these birds, nor does it guarantee a hatch. There are a lot of factors that influence the chances of winning at shows, including nutrition, condition of birds, and the size of the shows. Several factors come into play during incubation, so we have no way of guaranteeing a hatch. The incubation process is up to you. If you have any questions about our guarantee about what is covered and what is not, please ask before you bid!

    Out of the batch you sent me, I had 5 goldens, 1 tibetan and 2 brown hatch on Friday. 2 other goldens couldn't make it out of their shells for some reason. Thats 50% hatch rate which is EXCELLENT when you consider that we had power issues and heat fluctuations because of it.
