Welp, I ended up candling the quail eggs last night because I needed room for some more quail eggs my mother bought. 23 out of 75 were ether infertile (totally clear) or really early quitters (tiny amounts of development, but no real anything). One of those 24 was rotten, I'm talking grey, goooey, crushed the second I tried to remove from the turner and woohoo did it stink. The four eggs around it were three normal developers and one clear. I also candled the welsummer eggs again since it's past 10 days. Out of 12, 8 were clears :/ 4 were developing strong, though, so fingers crossed! My meat chicken eggs, out of the 10 (of 15) who arrived unbroken, only four have developed anything...which is not entirely unexpected considering the actual packaging was crushed at one corner and one egg was shattered and had dribbled over all the good eggs in the two days they took to get to me. Stupid postage. I've emailed the seller about getting new ones since the box was priority and, therefore ensured and she forgot to write the words "fragile" and "Hatching Eggs" on the outsided of the box...
I now have all quail eggs in one bator, 6 new duck eggs, 15 more quail eggs, and 15 button quail eggs (my mom is obsessed with them and now that my father knows I'm hatching, she brought me some to hatch for her...plus can you imagine pickled button quail eggs? So cute). I have Cayuga eggs, pekin eggs, 12 duck eggs, and 12 muscovy eggs coming and my mom and I are heading to pick up 4 dozen coturnix/texas AM quail eggs this saturday. I guess I better finish my mini fridge bator and pulg it in this week xD
