They are starting to lay! Hooray! So, lessee.. born on Jan 24th, to today March 11, that is 7.5 weeks. I am sure they would have started a bit earlier if I hadn't moved them outside outside to the new big pen.

Nice egg!! My Coturnix didn't start to lay until 10 weeks! 7.5 weeks is GREAT! Of course, it may have helped I switched to Gamebird Starter for them after 7 weeks when I realized my mistake

LOL yes you are a granddaddy.. if I hatch it. I was thinking of blowing it out. It's a tiny egg, but it's perfect otherwise! May be too small for a chick to come out of. But since I ordered more eggs from ya and i get them next week perhaps I'll have a few of my own to add to the clutch!

Mine are fed 28% gamebird starter. They love it if I don't get their feeder refilled fast enough they bite me. Not hard as they are tiny but darn they are impatient!!
