    Well, I thought I would give equal time to a colleague.

    Robbie sent me 100 of his finest White A&M Quail.

    I will be treating them just as I treat the Tatankas, same feed, same water, same "air time".

    First of all they came neatly shipped.

    I set ~60 eggs, cracked a few in the Quail rails turners they were so large...

    I locked down about 50-55 eggs and hatched ~40 fuzzybutts.



    who are growing like mad!




    added a column to our weights spreadsheet to track their progress and will update this thread when I can.

    They are version # v3.25.2012

    thanks for watching.

    I talked with JamesMarie and put my name on the list. The recommendation was to go with the AM’s for the larger breast and the wilds met weight but a longer bird. Is there much difference because I would like more wild’s and figure both birds will dress out better than the ones I have now. I have whites now and really like how easy it is to sex the wild birds.
    Has anyone hatched both birds and have input?
    Thanks

    I am partial to the white birds, but the color sexing is making it hard to stay away from the wild browns...

    13 day weigh-ins yesterday. I wingband'd 9 so far.

    weighed 8 of them at 13 days. born 3.25.

    #1224=99g
    1223= 111g
    1222=89
    1221=99
    1220=90
    1219=89
    1218=92
    1217=95.

    this is 20% of the brood. avg. 95.5g @ 13 days.

    ahead of the curve.

    these are version 3.25, so they are 16 days old.

    I weighed each and everyone of them, I cut several bands off them I had installed incorrectly (thanks for the heads up Idaho)

    this was couple days ago weights at 13 days. day 16 weights next to them for our 3 day gains.

    #1224=99g- 122
    1223= 111g- 140
    1222=89- 116
    1221=99- 119
    1220=90- 111
    1219=89- 106
    1218=92- 124
    1217=95- 123

    and looking at my scribble, I see ~90% a consistent 110-120g, with the max #1223 @ 140g
