    Good luck with your hatch. I am putting some EE's in today that I got from Leah and I just hatched 7 barred rocks last week. I have never hatched quail, so that should be fun. I understand they have a much shorter incubation time and you have to grind the starter feed for them. So tiny compared to those chicken eggs!

    Unless someone close by wanted some chicks. I'll have to wait and see what hatches. I've had rotten luck with shipped eggs this year. [​IMG]
