Did not know they were quail eggs until your second post!  I've never hatched quail eggs, so have no idea how difficult they are to candle.  The best you can do is try with a very bright light in a very dark room.  If that works, then candle them all.  If you can't see anything, even an air cell, well... at least you tried.  If you can't successfully candle, do be sure to stick your nose in there daily and sniff out any stinkers!

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.

If you're smelling something bad without even opening the incubator, you need to get in there and investigate. That's going to get nasty :sick
