    I don't know if quail eggs are different than chicken eggs but chicken eggs last quite a while.

    So are you making tiny sunny side up eggs? or tiny little omlets? [​IMG]
     
  6. Congrats on the first egg.

    Will your eggs really last long enough to need refrigeration? Seems like most eggs are gone within the first day or two around here. I would have no problem eating a quail egg several weeks old if it has been refridgerated.
    If your going to incubate them then only let em sit for a week to 10 days at the long end.

    I don't know exactly how long eating eggs last in the fridge. I keep them for a max of 3-4 weeks, then throw them out or recycle them for feed-back. Hatching eggs are dis-guarded after 10 days. You kinda have to make a choice....eating/hatching.

    Very exciting.

    I got my first last Saturday~ Total of 29 so far!! I wonder when the urge to go outside and look for eggs every hour, stops. Okay, I lied, it's more like every 20 minutes...


    Congrats!!!

    yea i'll check mine in the morrning after i get up, thats when i add more sand in the boxes, refill food, all that good stuff, snacks are at this time as well.

    then i'll check again about dusk, or after i get home from work, usually some in there. i'm guessing they get happy about more sand and treats lol
