To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- You must gather 12 eggs
To document completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
- Tell us in 1 paragraph or less about the hens/ducks/etc you are collecting the eggs from (Are they yours? A friends? How many hens?)
- A bird in the nesting box
- An egg in the nesting box
- A full egg carton with the eggs you have collected
We have 28 hens and 2 roosters that we rotate around the pastures in a mobile coop. They just started laying in July. We have black Australorp, speckled sussex, buff Orpington, silver laced wyandotte, whiting true blue, whiting true green, and white rock.
We have 11 chickens and a goose. They are all about 6 1/2 months old. The goose is a White Chinese, 3 chickens are Black Australorps; 4 are Rhode Island Reds, and 4 are Barred Rocks. We typically get 10 or 11 chicken eggs a day. The goose seems to lay a couple of days in a row, then takes a break for 3 or 4 days.
As I read the BB, it just says fowl. Since a quail is a fowl, I think you'd be fine collecting 12. And doing it over a few collection cycles is fine as well. Good luck!

Oh sure, it's a tiny ad, but under the right circumstances, it gets bigger.
