So here is the deal with
Button Quail Eggs. I
will sell them at the price listed below. These prices include
shipping cost. The
eggs and shipments are automatically insured by USPS and I always
offer to replace any broken eggs for shipping cost alone. **I
do pack them very well and most orders arrive with no problems
and no broken eggs. BUT IF you experience broken eggs and want
replacements you MUST send me photos of the damanged box, if
they box is not damanged the PO will not honor any claims.
I pack them in trays surrounded
by cushion, bubble wrap and packing material. Thats all I can
do to ship them. Don't ask for anything more. I have been shipping
them for years and know how to do it for safe arrival.
All eggs chosen from a mixture
of all of our rare varieties. Sorry cannot sell eggs of individual
single varieties, though I will do my best to choose the colors
you prefer but they are sold as an assortment from all of
the varieties that I breed. But..., if you are searching for
certain colors in particular I will do my best to send those
if I have those colors separate and can collect enough eggs
THERE ARE SEVERAL OPTIONS
TO CHOOSE FROM IN ORDERING EGGS, SEE BELOW!
If you want more then place
multiple orders if I can ship them together I will do so and
refund excess postage.
If they are not all available
to ship at the same time, I will ship them as they become available.
What percent hatch can you
expect from these eggs? While there is no way to predict how
many will hatch, The hatch rate in summer months runs about 70%,
Which is about as good as it will ever get. The hatch rate in
winter months is about 40% or less. Customers have reported hatches
as low as 11% and as high as 82%. There is no doubt that individual
incubators and their owners will influence the hatch rate. There
is also no doubt the shipping also affects the hatch rate.
I can also tell you right
off if the eggs take longer than 17 days to hatch, YOUR INCUBATOR
IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY, NO MATTER WHAT YOU MIGHT THINK. Longer
hatch times indicate a low temperature reading regardless of
what your thermometer says, BUT A NEW ONE!
Button quail eggs hatch in
17 days, anything from 19-20 and 21 days is an instant indication
that there was an incubator problem. I have had people report
poor hatches only to find out that the few eggs that hatched
hatched on day 20 or 21 or something other than 17, This always
means the temperature was NOT consistent or not accurate during
the incubation period.

by Priority mail which is 2-3 day delivery depending on your
