I've just finished... and am still going through the recordings... this webinar based social media marketing education course. Learn More at: goo.gl/T4Iw20
To successfully self publish a book, an author has to find ways of marketing a self-published book online. Social media marketing seemed like the most accessible and effective book marketing for self-published authors, so social media marketing education came to the top of my To Do list in 2015.
Social media – and much of social media marketing – is free; like a puppy is free. I heard that phrase from someone else and immediately adopted it. It was so cute. But as soon as I got home with my social media, I realized that I was going to need some resources and advice. I ...

10/16ths of an inch tall, light beige or white or greenish, semi-transparent. They look like jelly beans. Very fragile, very thin shell, blown with two tiny holes, top and bottom. So adorable we put up with their fragile attitude.

The pigeon egg is a perfect oval, and has a shiny white finish that almost looks as if it was already decorated! But that is the natural coating, very small pores, shiny, uniform white... it's a lovely oval shaped egg. Smaller than bantam chicken, smaller than chukar, larger than quail.
1.5 inches tall, and there is no fat end or pointy end, it is truly oval. If you take a string around the middle, it stretches out 4 inches on the ruler. 4.5 inches if the string goes end to end over the single hole on the longest dimension.
Single small hole on one end. My stock of pigeon eggs is from backyard rooftop pigeon fancier who raises the for fun.

Valley Quail, light beige with lots of brown spots @ 1.25 inches tall, 3.5 inches around the tallest circumference, 3 inches around the fattest circumference, 3/16ths inch hole. Similar to the Gamble Quail egg but more speckled. Less blotchy than the Coturnix Quail egg and lighter. It is a delightfully elegant little egg, just beautiful. Limited supply...

Coturnix, also known as Pharaoh Quail, dark brown blotches on light brown background - magnificently blotchy, @ 1.25 inches tall, 3.5 inches around the tallest circumference, 3 inches around the fattest circumference, 3/16ths inch hole. Textured by the blotches, sometimes has a natural chalky finish.

Bobwhite Quail Egg
white, @ 1.25 inches tall, 3.5 inches around the tallest circumference, 3 inches around the fattest circumference, 3/16ths inch hole. Porous white surface, often textured by natural white on white details. Thin, but the most flexible of all the eggs.

This picture is of the Dove egg, but for sale is the Diamond Dove egg, which is half the size of the regular Dove egg. I don't currently have regular dove for sale... but wanted to keep the picture for comparison (updated picture coming soon). The second picture shows both... and you will recieve the smaller egg.
The Diamond Dove lays an egg that is smaller than Button Quail, but bigger than finch. About the size of my thumbnail, it is a darling little egg. Quite sturdy, while still being a fragile real blown egg. All white, with a porous shell, not shiny. One tiny hole on the end, it is oval - not really egg shaped.

My first book was the story of this website, "Just A Couple of Chickens" and a sequel is underway, but before I went on and on about chickens, it was time to write about my grandfather, Colonel C. J. Tippett and his aviation pioneering life.
I am crowing from the rooftops, delighted to announce that "When No One Else Would Fly" is now available on Amazon.com!
Sixteen-year-old Cloyce Joseph Tippett saw his first airplane in an Ohio field in 1929, and knew he had to learn to fly. Using charisma and ingenuity, he acquired the biplane, but the Great Depression drove him to join the army to build his aviation career. He needed advanced flight training at Randolph and Kelly Fields in Texas, but the army would not let...
