    [​IMG] I was looking at James Marie farms for some quail eggs to buy and would really love to start with these guys. The main reason I want quail is for eggs, do you guys know how these guys are when it comes to egg laying? Thanks!

    I got 100 eggs last fall. Due to a power outage only 7 hatched. But those 7 have hatched about 100 cots so far! And I have made multiple jars of pickled eggs.

    They are called Range Tuxedo

    oh wow sounds like they are some pretty busy quail! You got the same type of quail that is pictured above?

    That is a color of the coturnix quail. Like some people are blondes some are not. But we are all people. I actually bought his Manchurian Golds and Jumbo Browns.

    Looks like a tux that was bred to have white on the belly too. Gorgeous! All Coturnix quail except maybe jumbos are excellent layers, producing around 200-250 eggs per year.

    My jumbos lay the same as regulars. Just 3 eggs to a chickens instead of five.

    Range Tuxedo (When you combine a Range Coturnix with a A&M/ British(English) Range Coturnix)

    Some are pied and some are areas (back yellowy/golden, front white), maybe some are stripes (could be).

    Basically tuxedos are two dominant (or more) colours, on one bird. (In Coturnix quail atleast)

    I called the hatchery dude and he said if i wanted quail for eggs I should go for the Gold Manchurian because they are the best egg layers. So I decided to go with 8 mandchurians and 7 Texas A&M's. I cant wait for my eggs to get in! The only thing i've ever hatched before are ducklings so this should be a pretty neat new experience for me! I've never ordered eggs before so I was wondering how good the hatch rate would be? Anyone ever have any problems incubating eggs that have been shipped?
