Oh! Their poor bottoms.

Geez I didnt realize how small they were. I think I (and now you) have about a 15g average. According to the yanks on youtube this is about what jumbo eggs should be. They also have a definition for a jumbo quail. Has to be 10oz at 10 weeks and the guys that sell fertile eggs want 95% of those that hatch to reach that jumbo definition.

10oz is 285g. Most folks with jumbos are hitting that number in 5 weeks give or take. My aim is 300g at 6 weeks.
