I don't have that many mature coturnix about 20 with at least 6 being males... I am getting alot of eggs... i mean a lot! like 1 of the quads is laying 5 or 6 eggs in a day... I know there's a male and 3 females, but i collect 2-3 eggs first thing in the morning, then another around 3 in the afternoon, then more just before lights off... Is that healthy? All of them are all over the place laying wise, they will lay one day but not for a day or two then they will lay 2 or even 3 times in a day. I don't eat eggs that often maybe once a week we'll scramble up a bunch and make french toast or scrambled eggs or what have you. Needless to say we cant keep up! I boiled up all the eggs last weekend, and am already up to 7 filled margarine dishes again this week. Prolific layers doesn't even begin to describe these guys.... thank god one pen is molting (i think lol). No one in our household has the time most days to make a proper breakfast so thats out, and not many of us like pickled eggs, so thats probably not a good option either.... What else is there? Would it be worth boiling them up and feeding them to the turkeys or chickens, or will that just encourage egg breaking?
