    Tori,

    Nope... due 4/13. [​IMG] But I'm 100% sure that 75% of them are developing, so I will be overrun with quail in another week. As if I didn't already have 100 eggs in the hatcher due Thursday. [​IMG]

    I promise I'll post pics...
    I did just hatch one of these, though!

    And these "hatched" last week...

    [​IMG] "Bunabuns"! I love it! They are the result of a cross between a Californian (large white "siamese cat" looking bunny, for those not in the know) and an 18 pound steel-grey Flemish Giant. He kind of looks like a silver fox. So I wasn't surprised to see 7 grey/black bunnies, but then we got one white bunny in there! [​IMG] We have a grey/white rex mix that is crossed with a New Zealand (grey) that is due next week. [​IMG]

    That particular ducky hatched a couple of weeks ago, but looks identical to the one that is drying off in the hatcher. [​IMG] There are 4 more pipped, and a couple dozen more in the incubator due over the next couple of weeks.

    Whew... talk about hatching frenzy. I set quail eggs every Wednesday, and chicken eggs every Friday, so they all hatch on Fridays. (I may change that... [​IMG]) I have 6 duck eggs in one hatcher, a bunch of BWs and coturnix in another, and chicken eggs in a third hatcher. I have 2 dozen silver grey dorking eggs arriving any day now, 360 chukar eggs shipping at the end of the week, 50 cornish cross chicks arriving early next week, and 100 pheasant chicks arriving the week after that.

    12 buttons due thursday, 34 rhode island reds due friday, 100+ coturnix due saturday, 10 bc marans due 16th (thursday), 40+ rhode island reds and rhode island red crosses, and some more coturnix due on the 18th (a saturday), annnnddd on the 23rd 100+ bobwhites (pretty much everything but the wild color) and my red coturnix eggies are due !!!!


    OH and im expectin duckie eggs in the mail and maybe more marans eggies if Ninjapoodles has some available for me to [​IMG] over lol!
