    I have 30 eggs available now, plus any extras between now and Monday evening. These eggs are from colony-raised normal blue breasted males, red breasted hens, chocolate hens, cinnamon red breasted males and hens. There are even a few from my silver/white trio.

    Incubation parameters are the same as those for chickens, except you stop turning at 14 days, and they hatch in 16 days.

    That is 1/4" hardware cloth that they are on, just for size reference.[​IMG]

    $16.00 for the final shipment from our girls this year. [​IMG]
    PayPal is [email protected]... please post "SOLD" here if you would like them.
    And thank you... [​IMG]

    They are lovely!

    I would love to but soon as they arrived Hubby would be packing. I pushed him a little and impulse bought 10 1.5 week old cornix already this week (I just finished a cage and it looked so sad empty [​IMG] ). I am currently grounded from my debit card (Hehehe still have a lil $$ stash in paypal account for emergency...opps...did I type that out loud? [​IMG] ) Next year....next spring.....that's my mantra for the fall/winter season. LOL [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL! Usually I hatch them on the rubber shelf liner. That photo was from my first hatch, before I knew better. They did ok, but they do have a tendency to squeeze themselves into a tight space, and you can't use 1/2" hardware in there or they get their heads stuck. The Coturnix kept doing that! :eek:

    It is pretty late in the season, but I had them so I thought I'd put it out there. No pressure. [​IMG]

    Good thing someone bought them before I saw them or I'd have had to add them to the 15 I already have in the bator...
