Incubation newbie question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My Pharaoh quail started laying yesterday. So far I got 3 eggs yesterday and 3 today. One is cracked. They seem to have no interest in being broody. I have an incubator.

So my question is, how many days can I collect before they need to be incubated?

I'm no expert like many members here, but I read that you can keep them at room temperature for up to 10 days before incubation.  I have successfully incubated eggs up to 10 days old with great results.​

 

Good luck, it's loads of fun hatching your own chicks.

Thanks, Del!! I knew that was the norm for chicken eggs, I just wanted to be sure with quail. I appreciate it.
