    I vote for setting August 15. [​IMG]

    I just hatched 77 quail, last one popped out an hour ago. I suspect the rest are done.

    I need about 60 butcher age quail on Nov 5, so I need to set earlier than Sept 1. [​IMG] My church is having a "wild game dinner" and I am donating birds. [​IMG]
