    That is officially the biggest quail egg ive seen. My girls layed a couple last year at 25g but that has to be 30 or better. Wow. Looks like the shell was soft enough, hopefully she doesnt prolapse.

    @dc3085 yeah it was 35g when I weighed it, but they had pecked a hole so it could of been 40 because it was missing some whites... Seriously though defiantly had to make a video on it....

    Well this batch of hens is about to be replaced because they are pushing 2 and just hatched out their replacements from JMF.
