    Ok, so I have 3 female quail. A few days ago I had 3 eggs in one day. 2 normal, 1 soft shelled egg. Then went 2 days of only 2 eggs/day. Then today I got the normal 2 eggs in the morning, and then after about noon, I had 1 more, a white one. It's texture was a little rough. It wasn't soft shelled..just white, and rough.
    Whats up with that? Like a step up from soft shell? I'm confused, and totally new to quail. [​IMG]

    maybejoey got chickenidous?

    The bumps could just be the quails putting a little bit too much calcium into the egg.[​IMG] Pictures would help.[​IMG]
