    Along with the adult pair I have right now I just recieved 15 eggs from Charlie aka Wildsofpa yesterday! All eggs appeared fine and when I candled today only two have cracks. Soo 13 eggs went into the bator! Hoping to have some beautiful White Bobwhite chicks in 23 days and also have a Coturnix hatch due next week. Mostly my own eggs plus some Fawn/Ginger eggs from a breeder friend of mine.
    Can't wait!!! You would think after soo many hatches this would get old...but never does [​IMG]

    No I do mean White Bobwhite. Believe me I know what a A&M is...I breed those as well. A white bobwhite is a BOBWHITE just pure white instead of shades of brown and red. Here is a pic I just found on google...don't have pics of my pair yet.
