I’ve read many times that hatching eggs is like a drug. Never been on a drug that made me want to raise my own food, but hatching is definitely addictive! I picked up another 40 hatching coturnix eggs last night. Eventually our own birds should go into lay so I won’t need to rely on the breeder as much. All 40 are now in the incubator and within 18 days we’ll have another batch of chicks (hopefully with better results than last time).
On a side note, I’ve also picked up two Chinese Button Quail. If all works out, I’ll breed them as well. Due to their size, they make great pets and not great meals.
