    Incubator test results!

    So I built my own incubator this summer in prep for some ball python eggs. I wanted to give it a test run but didn't have the eggs yet and you can't exactly go out and buy ball python eggs. Soo I went out and bought some quail eggs. Incubator worked flawlessly and 23 days later, all 18 of my quail hatched! Look at these little guys


    They were all the regular brown in colour except for this one... I wonder what that means in quail genetics. It actually had blue eyes as well, though you can't really see in the photo. Blue eyed leucistic quail?? lol Any quail experts want to chime in?

    I sold most of them to pet homes but kept back 5, including the white one. I hear their meat is really good (as people food, not snake food) Though I just can’t bring myself to to do the butchering work.

    Here's a photo of the white one as an adult. You can kinda see the blue eyes.

    White Quail

    They are very cute, fun little critters & the eggs are outstanding as well as being a great source of food for monitors.
    Your white quail is an English White or Texas A&M. Both are color variations of the Coturnix (Japanese) Quail.
    A&M University did a project to breed the perfect jumbo quail for harvest, large size & white color for a more favorable looking finished product when plucked.

    I keep a mix of color variations (Standard, A&M, Italian, Tuxedo & Tibetan) which makes for some very interesting chicks.
