    Congrats! Get some egg scissors if you haven't already, they make opening them a breeze.

    Congratulations! Quail eggs are just the tiniest things. I've never really fried them, I just boil 'em.
    Have you hatched any though? :)

    Yes that one was fertile!
    And yes there are some in the bator now but I am not sure how many if any are going to be fertile.
    Brand new layers.
    I just cracked an egg laid today (so I wouldn't add it to the bator) and it was not fertile.
    :( I am beginning to think that the males I butchered the other day were the ones making fertile eggs and not the one male I have left.
