    For coturnix or buttons really powerful, anything else is relatively easy.

    Hey Daren, I have never been able to see the early veining in the corts. After 8-10 days throw the ones that glow clear away. Not being able to see thru them is good at that point. Others may have better luck a different way... How many could ya get in a bator? Bill
