    Look at my neighbor's silkie bantam, she is sitting on 11 eggs of her own and 5 coturnix quail eggs, one of them is out of the next because she doesn't have no more space![​IMG]
    Wonderful, we are pointing to November 21 for the hatching day.

    Chicks hatched!!!
    ...but, no coturnix quail has born. Guess it doesn't work, but I'm still not sure if the eggs were fertile.
