    Well I have some quail out there that are cranking out GIANT eggs as far as quail go. I took some cell pics of 2 of the BIG eggs and also 1 of the 5 DOUBLE YOKERS.

    Are yours the A&M Giant White Coturnix? Or do I have them mixed up?

    We have about 90 eggs from the A&M Coturnix due to hatch on Tuesday, so I was curious what kind your's were.

    Sam,

    I have never heard of double yolkers from quail! What kind do you have? What are you feeding them? And are you selling hatching eggs??? (Can't send the double yolks for that)

    I raise Jumbo Browns and Goldens. Yes I do SELL HATCHING EGGS.....

    24+ eggs for $8.00 + $9.80 shipping

    I feed mine gamebird starter and try to give them a pampered life. I dont ship double yoke eggs...number one because they wont hatch...number two because they wont fit into my quail egg cartons lol. I have an EGGBID auction going on right now for anyone interested. And if you want eggs and dont feel like bidding just shoot me a PM.

    Yes Connie, that is what I was referring to. Double yolkers just don't normally make it. They would be twins - but there is no room in an egg for two babies to grow so they most often die before it is time to hatch, if they even start to develop. I have read lots of stories about people trying, but not one where someone succeeded. That doesn't mean they haven't, but it would be very rare.

    Thanks for the info, Sam!
