I will as soon as I get to the computer
Only day 5 here, but I grabbed 3 eggs to check air cells. All three look great.
One is a developing double yolker! I'll let it go as far as nature decides it can.
I have had a few double yolkers, they have mad it to day 10 for me.
How do you guys tell if they're double yolkers when you candle them? I have a few large eggs, but I'm not sure if they are single or double.
I hope this helps.
Second fertility test 18 eggs in
Half EE x orpington
Half EE x mix
So I've hatched 40 out of 71 quail eggs at day 18. 35 hatched by day 17 and I've had a few stragglers. I helped 2 out of their eggs; both were poorly positioned and both were helped slightly but still had to fight their way out of the shell so that their hearts and legs developed. I can't find them in the 40 that hatched, so that's good.
I did find one under the feeder today at 4:30. I can't believe it got under there. It looked crushed and dead, but it was still breathing when I picked it up, so I put it in a small nail box under the heat lamp and gave it first some water then some watery food with a 3mL syringe. It's tired, but I've put it back with the flock and it's moved around a lot, so I'm hopeful.
I really thought chickens were dumb. I'm going to apologize to mine tomorrow. The quail chicks are so ****** cute, though.
So far 9 have hatched. All moved to my Mama Chicken, and she us handling it with grace and love. This is amazing!!!
Thanks, that helps a little bit, but I'm going into day 9 now. Do you know what it would look like on day 10? I plan on doing my second candling then.
