    I was hoping to keep expenses down as much as possible. So, is anyone interested in trading your quail eggs for my soaps? I'm still mastering different recipes and need to get a good loaf mold made, but I'll have everything down before the trade is made. I'm hoping to trade in mid to late January. Please let me know if you're interested, what type of quail you have and how many fresh, fertile eggs you'd be able to trade. Thanks guys!

    I have multicolored cortunix... not laying yet, but hopefully by Jan.
    I also have buttons. They're laying now.
    What type of soap do you make?
    I used to make CP soap, but don't seem to have the time anymore. I even have molds I have never had a chance to use!

    I do cold process and hot process. They each have pros and cons. I'll probably be doing mostly hot process until after the holidays though, since the cure time is shorter. I may do a trade with several people, to get different kinds and/or different bloodlines. I'm going to definately try to convince the bf that I *need* button quail, so hopefully I can take you up on that offer!

    My daughter would love some soap that she will not react to. I am even worse and cannot stand any added fragrances.
    We have lots of jumbo brown eggs right now. By then we should also have the A & Ms producing eggs too. We also have a few odd colors too. Lots of Buttons right now also.. [​IMG]

    They are so fun to watch. I keep a pair in my bedroom so I can hear their chirping and whistling in the morning. It brings thoughts of springtime to hear birds in the morning.

    We have a silver hen, a white pair, a cinnamon pair, a wild pair, and a blueface/wild pair.

    I prefer cold-proccess soap with natural scents. [​IMG]

    I currently have 6 cupcake bars of LIGHTLY scented lilac. It is saponified olive oil, saponified coconut oil and fragrance. No colorants. They are all 2.5oz+ If anyone is ready to trade after x-mas, I'd be greatful! The weight on these would generally be sold for $15, then shipping. Please let me know how many eggs of what color/species you have that you'd be willing to trade. Thanks so much guys!

    I am testing fertility right now. I will set the eggs in the bator early next week. I want to make sure the little man is doing his job before I send trade or anything [​IMG]
