    I went out to take the lil Button Quail some fresh food and water today when I found an egg [​IMG], I am actually glad to see it because my uncle who gave them to me told me he would find an egg or two in with them once in a while so I guess that means they are settling in to their new home since thats the first egg in two weeks here.

    If there is anyone in Northwest Missouri that would like some hatching eggs email me or message me here because I am not currently hatching them and they will just go to waste, I would rather see them go to a good place that can incubate them

    Quote:Well, no. But if you want to collect all the eggs between now and then, you have the perfect balance of a lot of eggs, and they all aren't old enough that they won't hatch. It's the best of both worlds. [​IMG]

    No need to waste them even if you don't incubate them. They are good for people to eat or feed to the dogs or scramble/boil and mash up for your chickens/birds. All enjoy scrambled eggs and LEAVE the shell in that is fine..............more calcium.
