This is first time for quail....but second time for incubator
My first time was chicken eggs ...start from 13 only 2 hatch
Very exciting for you. Hope you get a good hatch rate. I have hatched chickens twice, first time had 17 out of 22 hatch! Have hatch quail a number of times and mostly had good hatch rates but the last batch, which were bought eggs, plus one of our own eggs was terrible. Only had 11 out of 55 hatch! Plus our lonely egg also hatched which was great. Cracked remaining open and none of them appeared to be fertile. Nothing at all had developed in any of them.
Currently have 4 in our mini bator that a chicken was incubating for the first 6 days. They go into lockdown on Sunday so will be interesting to see if any even hatch.
