    Hi there! I am getting up to 22 eggs a day from my coturnix. I have many different colors.

    PEN 1 is my jumbo browns. A good part of the eggs will be from them. I have 9 hens and 2 roos in this pen.

    PEN 2 is my A&M pen. I have 5 hens and 1 roo in this pen.

    PEN 3 is my tuxedo pen. I have 1 roo (dark tibetan) and 4 hens (2 dark tibetan tuxedo, 1 orange tibetan tuxedo, and 1 dark tibetan) in this pen.

    PEN 4 is my golden/rosetta pen. There are 4 females (1 golden, 1 rosetta, 1 rosetta tibetan, 1 pharaoh) and 1 male golden.

    That is 22 hens!!

    The eggs are $5 a day, as many days as you want! Shipping depends on your zip code. Please post sold and pm me your zip and for paypal info. These are available now! [​IMG]

    The eggs I got from you hatched out great!!!! I want more, how much is shipping to 37091. I only want 2 days worth.

    Are these the only pens of coturnix that you have? If so, we ended up with 5 A&M, 5-6 jumbo browns and I think 1 tuxedo. My husband is so thrilled.

    Quote:Yep, the golden/rosetta pen hasn't been laying for that long, so you would probably be right on the colors. You could have also gotten A&M, dark tibetan, or tuxedo from the tuxedo pen, but at the time I only had 2 hens, so you wouldn't have gotten many of them.

    The shipping is $5 to you, plus $2 for paypal fees and packaging materials, for a total of $17.. I'll pm you my paypal address. Thanks emmalynn. [​IMG]

    I PMd you back and sent paypal. Let me know when they ship. I am going to surprise the husband. He has shown the ones I got from you last time to anyone that will hold still long enough. He is just so excited about them.

    They may not be chickens but I am going to enable him. Hopefully he'll be so excited he will forgive me for the last batch of silkies I bought.

    I have no control. [​IMG]


    edited for spelling- I haven't had enough caffeine yet!!

    Quote:Great job!! I can't even hatch them that good! [​IMG] I think my problem this last time was that I had others due 2-3 days before mine were due, and I just moved them all to the hatcher at the same time. The humidity went up to 99% when the first set started hatching, so I think my birds' eggs that were in there got drowned [​IMG] I have about 60 eggs in the hatcher right now, so I'll see how they do [​IMG] I kind of hope they don't hatch so good, where the heck am I supposed to put all these quail??

    Let me know when they ship so I can harass the postal workers.

    Yours were the first quail for me to hatch out. We are very pleased and are completing their aviary as quickly as possible. They are able to get out of the rubbermaid tub already!!

    Mine went to the big brooder outside today. [​IMG] They have been flying out of their indoor box for a few days. They are only 2-3 weeks old! What's funny is that everyone says how flighty bobwhites are, well I have 3 bobwhite chicks in a seperate brooder that are about a month older. They haven't flown out once [​IMG]

    I'll be sending your eggs out tomorrow, had some mishaps with the eggs yesterday and today [​IMG]
