    A couple of my egg orders came today. I'm so excited to get back into the quail breeding game and work on improving the colorations and quality of birds. Today I got...

    21 Ginger, Ginger Golden, and British Dark range eggs
    6 broken
    15 good(so far havent candled yet)

    25 Jumbo Brown eggs
    2 broken
    23 good(so far havent candled yet)

    I will update as the eggs keep coming. I'm expecting 3 more packages if I remember correctly.
