Thanks Sue, chucked any other egg that looked a little old, will set the blr eggs soon , at 10 now, oldest collected one is now 7 days old. Will set eggs Tuesday as gives the quails a day head start in hatching.

6 blr eggs were fertile , 2 from the best blr hen and 4 from a pullet that i bred from my roo over one of the eb/ ewh hens,
The pullet also was eb/ewh.
So far 1 egg from the best hen hatched of eb down and 3 from the the eb/ewh pullet of which 2 are eb and 1 is eb/ewh :nuts :laughing . Eagerly awaiting the last 2 eggs to hatch. The california quail eggs were all duds, oh well.
3 eb blr bantam wyandotte hatching this late is awesome, if thats all i get still over the moon. :thumbs:

Another eb/ewh hatched from the pullet. So 3 eb base and 2 eb/ewh, last egg from hen was dis.
Asmfor the standards are on the way with feathering up, the eb one is mainly blue so laced so far on breast with some red on back lacing- ground red colour should come in as it matures :pray . The eb/ewh is colouring up a nice blr, and yes it did have the ewh wing markings in the beginning. The last chick the very orange one had no ewh wing markings and has the darkest ground colour, very rich red/ burgundy :think: , will be interesting to see how it's lacing develops.

News update, in the bantams growing the splits are a cockerel and a pullet, the largest eb chick from eb hen is blr cockerel, and the the 2 eb other chicks are black laced red pullets.
As for the standards eb blr cockerel, eb/ewh blr pullet :?: , and the ewh is poorly laced cockerel, but real deep ground colour, he will be culled.

Going well mate. Best of luck with them over the off season. Hope they grow well for you and produce good results come spring time.
