    This is our 2nd batch of eggs to incubate. The 1st time we did 13 White Leghorns and 6 hatched but 1 died after 3 days [​IMG]

    For our 2nd attempt we are doing a mix of breeds: (2) each of Black Australorp, Light Sussex, Welsummer, Wheaten Penedesenca, Golden Polish, Ancona and Ameraucana/Araucana for a total of 14 eggs!

    Here they are resting after arriving in the mail.

    We were going to incubate quail for our homeschool science project and decided on the Leghorns b/c they were bigger eggs and cheap - LOL! After purchasing the coop supplies and all the incubating stuff I can hardly call them cheap anymore. [​IMG]

    these quail will probably be raised in the house in rabbit cages.. just really depends on how many hatch!
