    Hi all,
    I recieved my order of Pharoah Coturnix Quail from a breeder who breeds numerous types of quail. In the order I also recieved a very odd looking egg. I am almost certain it is not a Coturnix quail egg, but I cannot seem to find online a picture of what type of quail this may be. So maybe some of you can help me with IDing it? [​IMG]
    I emailed the hatchery I got the egg from with pictures and I have not gotten a recponce and am not sure if i will so hoping you all can help because if it does hatch, I'd like to know what im raising LOL!

    The "BQ" are button quail eggs the "CQ" are Coturnix Quail eggs.

    Heres a clearer shot of it when I recieved them yesterday:

    that's cool it's even a different size and shape. I hope it hatches, and i hope it's a hen and lays me more weird eggs like this LOL! Thanks for the reassurance that it is just a coturnix quail eggie [​IMG]

    its' really neat the various sizes patterns and colors I got in all the same "type" of Coturnix quail. [​IMG] I have one that's almost pure white, another that's really tiny almost the size of a BQ egg (i assume it wont hatch cuz it's so smal but i'm batin it anyhow). [​IMG]

    Then again I guess chickens can pop out some really weridos too....[​IMG]
