    My valleys just started laying! Tiny, speckled little things that are only half the size of a coturnix egg. Of course, they're getting bigger, but I was amazed at the size of them when they first started showing up. And they aren't from any of my other birds as my valleys are in their own secure pen. Whoooo! I doubt that the teeny ones are fertile (those would be some darn small chicks) but I have some larger ones in the 'bator. I've seen my roo breeding the hens only a few times over the past month, but who knows.

    The eggs are so adorable! [​IMG]
