    Here is what is new in my Coturnix incubation......

    Incubator #1
    77 Assorted Coloration Coturnix.....due Feb.2

    Incubator #2
    35 Reg.Brown Coturnix from Luv......due Feb.10
    15 Red Tuxedo & Golden Coturnix from spooky...due Feb.10


    Really looking forward to seeing what hatches out of both bators. I have the local amish guy making my breeding cages....and Just got a roll of that brooder card-board stuff to make those circular brooders. Will have all chicks in one large brooder. Might start them off in a cage until they start growing...not sure though.
    This will be the most chicks I have ever hatched at one time.
    Will be sure to post lots of pics.....and I really hope I get a good hatch for this time of year!

    Around the first of February, I should have 120 jumbo brown and A&M eggs going in my bator, but nothing right now! Good luck with your eggs! I should check with the amish guys around here for good cages!

    Quote:Charlie already shot the groundhog, so there's no way he's seeing that shadow and we will see spring soon. [​IMG] [​IMG] Just kidding. I hope you have a great hatch!
