First quail egg
We got our first quail egg today, comparing it to a duck egg. I don't know what we'll do with one egg though!! I had to seperate 5 males because they were fighting, poking each others eyes out and other stuff. We have 50 + eggs in the incubator that should hatch next week. My marans didn't hatch very well, 2 hatched and one died right after hatching. The one is doing fine and I have it in the pen with our one eyed brown leghorn pullet.
