    I just got a couturnix egg that had no color it was just white with a very light green tent to it, what could have caused this?

    Is that one from the birds I sold you? There are genetics behind egg color. A lot of my birds lay solid white eggs so I guess they passed it down to yours. Here is a picture of one. It actually turned out to be a double yolker.

    That one did too, but you can't really see it in the picture. They just pop out every now and then. This is normal, for my birds anyway. I have never seen a green one, is it more of a light blue or turquoise?

    That's normal. I had quite a few of those eggs today. When do your eggs hatch?
