Quail eggs

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I was wondering if it's possible to hatch button and pharaoh quail at the same time in the same incubator. If it is would they hatch in the same time period?

You can, however, button quail take 16 days, while coturnix take around 18. You would have to stop turning the coturnix eggs a couple of days early maybe.

Would this be in any way harmful to the Coturnix quail?

Why not start the coturnix two days before the button?
