Furry and Feathered Friends

Speckled Eggs

We’ve been anticipating it for weeks and it finally happened.  The Button Quail have begun to lay!  We think there are 3 cocks and 2 hens, thought it could be 2 and 3 respectively.  So far we have only had 2 eggs in a day, but we are only a few days in.  I don’t know much of anything about Button Quail (except that they are super cute!), but from what K says they pretty much all start laying on the same day.  That is not the case with chickens, that can vary breed to breed and hen to hen and can span several weeks.

As you can see from the picture they eggs are not much bigger than my thumb, and the quail are about the size of a softball.  I’m thinking that I might try blowing out the yolks of a few to salvage the shells.   They just seem so perfect as an Easter decoration!
