    I got my first Quail egg. I know its a quail egg since it was in with the quail, The color and size. Is it rare for a quail to lay an egg at 6 weeks old?????

    Well if it was a coturnix that layed at six weeks that is very common, just look at the sticky. And I wouldnt even try to incubate the six weeks old eggs since they are just starting to lay, I would wait probably another month or two.

    There's a great post somewhere here on BYC that shows how to tell if they are fertile. It seems if you crack them open and see a tiny whitish bulls eye in the yolk they are fertile.

    Does anyone know where it was to share a link for Tikkajazz to look at?
