    Quote:*grins* ooh coturnix fit that bill very well [​IMG] Jumbo Browns or A & Ms (both coturnix), hatch in 16-18 days, are mature and ready for butchering in 6-8 weeks. [​IMG]

    Thanks, we have plenty of incubators but not very good hatch luck, waste of my time almost.
    Rather have chicks,
    Thanks again.
