    I have 35+ coturnix eggs available for someone that would like to hatch these little darlings. $18, including shipping, to go out on Monday (10/6) post with any extras I may collect this weekend. Paypal preferred so I can ship them out right away.

    There are "normal" brown coturnix, and "Jumbo" Coturnix. Of the jumbos, there is the chance for a couple of Goldens in the mix.

    Incubation:
    They hatch in 16 days @ 99.5°F forced air, ~50% humidity
    At day 14, increase the humidity to ~ 65-75% humidity.
    They do well hatching in a carton, too.
    Brooding is just like a chicken, starting at ~ 90-95°F and dropping 5°F each week until they're fully grown, which in their case is 6 weeks of age. They start laying eggs from 5.5-7 weeks. The male is identifiable by the salmon colored breast feathers, and a gurgling cat-call crow. They are sweet and personable, and not as flighty as the Buttons or Bobwhites.

    If you would like them, post "Sold" here, and I will PM you the information!
    Thank you~ [​IMG]

    Quote:I have zero space in my incubators right now with all the chukar and bobwhite eggs... so all 100 or so are up for grabs.

    There are now 43 of my eggs, which are pure browns... no mixing going on.
    There are 60 of the mixed eggs, which will produce browns, goldens, and other combinations of the two... very cute chicks. All of the eggs have been collected this last week. If someone wants them all, it would be $26 total to ship them out. Or, we can share the wealth and I can split them 50/50 for the $18 each.

    Bantamman13 - I got your PM @ 5:51am this morning... at this point they are still available as no one has said they specifically want them... [​IMG] I'd like to ship them out today, though... they're all just sitting there, tempting me to put together another incubator, and my husband will definitely boot my butt out to the chicken coop if I do...
