    One of our quails laid her first egg yesterday. I don't know what we are going to do with it. My wife wants to get an incubator. I want to leave it with the quail. If those eggs start hatching, I'm going to have to build another cage. [​IMG]

    Quote:I think it was the Coturnix but I'm not sure. I have 5 quail in the pen and there are 3 different kinds. To be honest I think they are Heinz 57 type quails because I haven't seen any pictures that look like them. I'll take some pictures this weekend. Maybe you can I.D. them for me.

    they sound like they probably are coturnix [​IMG] I'd love to see them!!!

    if they are coturnix, I'd say for sure incubate the eggs if you want chicks because coturnix aren't known for going broody very often. [​IMG]
