    I got 25 eggs from pop57. 4 were broken or cracked when they got here, but so far I have 12 'little' babies! These guys are huge! Even compared to the A&M's I have! Only 9 more eggs to go!!

    Definitely PM me the name! So...what was in this variety pack? And how many?...not all of us are blessed with a sportsman you know [​IMG] Or should I say 2 or 3 sportsmans! [​IMG] Course if I fill all the bators I have....that'd be a lot of quail eggs! [​IMG]

    Sorry to hijack Shelley! [​IMG]

    You can fit 120 eggs in one incubator with the turner, so you don't need a sportsman!!

    I would suggest getting a large order of them as well, no matter what kind you decide on. I got a total of 31 A&M eggs (2 seperate hatches) and have 2 birds, both male. I now have these, had 25 eggs sent, and have 14 babies so far! If you are getting them to eat and/or breed, you would need to start with a lot! UrbanMama, you have a family of 6 right? Figure for each of the kids, you would need at least 1, and for you and hubby, probably 3 each, that right there would take care of the amount I hatched! Plus, you could always sell any extra birds. I have people asking me if I have any to sell. Yeah, 2...not interested! [​IMG]

    Yup, we have a big family! [​IMG] I do have the quail trays for my turner too....I just don't know what I'd do with so many...what if I have a hatch like Jims??? [​IMG] I'm not sure what to do....start small and end up going big...or just go big! [​IMG] Where's everyone putting their quail? I was thinking of setting up shelving unit/cages in my basement until the end of winter and then setting up rabbit hutch type cages this spring.... Time to start looking for quail housing links...[​IMG]

    Oh yeah...how many jumbos are you up to now???? [​IMG] I can't wait for the pics!
