Sorry for the extra long quote...I had a lot to catch up on! this is mostly my philosophy with assisting, any egg. How long do you wait to make a safety hole after internal pip? I give you credit for doing it! I've only culled a chick. But with all these roosters, I know I'm going to have to put some down, eventually. I'll ask you for pointers! They are just so perfect and adorable! Great job!! X2!! Are you planning on keeping the quail? Breeding them? My neighbors quail eggs that I tried to hatch were old but also filthy and extremely thin, brittle shells from poor nutrition, exactly like you said. Wouldn't be good breeders. Sorry you lost so many! I want to see it so bad. Me and my 10 year old son have seen all of them except for the new one. Well I guess his dad and his girlfriend went to see it and he said that my son should absolutely not be allowed to see it. That it's far more violent then the previous ones and inappropriate for him to see. I call BS. I think he's just on a power trip. So what's your opinion compared to the previous ones?? Exactly!! No, I hate it! I think the food is gross. My grandmother loves it! But she pretty much loves any restaurant.
