    I built another pen. I've got 61 new iddy's thought I'd put 30 here & 31 in the one behind it. I still need another one for a grow out pen for my Bob's. I Was gonna use this one but never thought I would hatch 61 out of 70 eggs & now this pen will be full. Do you ever have enough pens? Think I'm gonna put one big net over my hundred acres & be done with it or maybe I'll buy the Astrodome . That's a dang good idea. I could sell tickets to the bird freaks & eggs, dome foam, & coturnix on a stick. I could get all the BYC"ERS who sell stuff to come along & fill all the shop space & they could pay me a percentage. This could be it. [​IMG]

    Quote:I couldn't believe it. I was down to 8 coturnix. So , I loaded up the brinsea with 70 eggs figured I'd get 40 maxs. Well, on the 16Th day of incubation I had already done lock down the day before no problem. On day 16 theirs one maybe two iddy's that have hatched OK cool. I go about my business told myself I'll get them out this evening. So, that evening I finally open the bator & there's 61 Iddy's screaming at me that they want out of this goofy confined swet boxs. Glad, I had already built this pen.

    Randy,
    Your pretty lucky you only have to build a hotel fror 60. Every time I hatch it's normaly 150 plus that I have to find room for ( I THINK I NEED A VACATION).What started out to be a hobie turned out to be a lot of work along with the feeder business

    Quote:I hear ya James. I'd like to find one good quail customer around my farm & hatch strictly for him & be done with it. I don't want to get into shipping > Than you have birds dying, eggs cracking & to many headaches. I wonder if Chuck Norris hunts quail he lives right down the street. I know they raise chickens. He probably won't stop at little old 7L that's got hand painted Farm Fresh Eggs for sale signs & every other sign trying to make a buck. Hell ,I feel like Fred Sanford over here. Dang hay fields are so miserably dry I won't get a cutting next thing you know Obama will want his money for the taxes. He won't understand that it hasn't rained but maybe 6 inches this year & my hay fields sux so help me out bro I need a stimulus package. LOL. Yea, your right it was kinda nice building that hotel vs the last two Marriott's that dam near killed this old man. You want a good laugh I'll get a picture of my front gate. My neighbors just laugh every time they see me.[​IMG] Here's the signs dang people pull over & spend 10 minutes reading the signs & drive off these bohunks around here want their vegetables grown in hot houses they look at god grown good tasting veggies & if it has a crack in it they don't buy it.

    I know how ya feel. Imagine a redneck kid sitting at the flea market selling turnip greens and kale out of an old propane grill that had a sign on the front that says home grown greens in big orange letters.
