    Waiting on our front porch were 50 quail eggs from Sam.

    NOT A SINGLE ONE WAS BROKEN!!!!

    Now I suppose I need to figure out how to incubate these things. [​IMG]

    They look like oversized speckled jelly beans. [​IMG]

    Hey PC-

    You can hide those in your room when you move. [​IMG] Be warned though, my males never stopped their crowing. ever. Thought I had some wild creature outside my bedroom window the first time I heard that Baakaaww in the middle of the night.

    I love my quail and need more now. They hatch out really easy. And even my neglected eggs had a fantastic hatch rate.
