    So yesterday was Christmas eve. We opened our presents because my daughter could only be with us last night. Everyone got me my first bator! Then I went up to the barn to do a last check on all the birds for the night. Checked all the pigeons then I went in the barn to see the Coturnex and there was my first egg!! Well that worked out well.

    That first egg is always exciting. Around the first of November I bought Manchurians that looked grown, but did not know their age. I looked for eggs each day and after bringing them into the sun room and lights I finally started getting eggs the day before Thanksgiving. Started off one egg then up to six which is how many hens I have. I consistently have gotten six eggs until a couple days ago I got five eggs for two days and now back to six again. I guess a girls decided to take a two day break.
