    i know its strange but i love blown eggs i only have a few but i love them. i have an osttrich emu and our pullets first eggs. i would love to someday find someone with quail, rhea, goose, duck, and swan as well. that will take lots of time and money. the zoo i got the eggs from charged 40 a pop for blown out nothing in them even! but its a fun thing i love to do and cant wait to get more. i really want a button quail egg so i can have a huge ostrich and a tiny quail egg.

    I love blown eggs too!!! I have hundreds of eggs from my quail, chickens,pheasants and turkeys! I would love to get an ostrich or emu egg as well. Sooner or later I will figure out what to do with them.

    i know it isnt much but i like them. thoes eggs are the first and last my birds layed before getting killed
    eta
    i would love quail i want a few buttons but i dont think my mother would say yes. i would absolutely love to incubate eggs and grow them. that would be amazing to have thoes little critters in my bedroom in a custom tank of some sort. i just dont know what i would need or what i would do. i also dont have an incubator but would love to hatch some and get a pair or 2 if it was possible. i need to do some research and get some help from you guys and some good ideas on how loud they can get and how big of an inclosure / how much the crud smells.

    Quote:Thank you! I would love to add those to the collection. I actually had some birds that would lay blue and green eggs but I had a coon/ feral dog problem that killed all of them before they could lay.
    Since then I have been mainly putting all of my efforts into my long tail chicken collection like Yokohamas.


    RIRbarredrock, Beautiful eggies! Hopefuly I will be able to get an ostrich and emu egg for the collection but if I ever do get any of those eggs I would be hard put not to incubate them. [​IMG]
