    A Little Morning Victory Dance

    With my latest hatch: here's the details... Last chick to hatch was about 4 days behind the first, and needed help. I essentially did an egg cesarean. Now, I may have caused the problem, but was worried it wasn't going to be able to hatch on its own. Things didn't look great... it was still...

    Advice for pipping quail, day 22...

    I have a clutch of 15 eggs, all viable as of day 14. It's now day 22 for my quail and yesterday we had 5 start pipping. The humidity has been between 50-70% since day 14 and heat at 99.5. Is it true it can take 12-24 hours for quail to "unzip"? Any other advice for a first-time hatcher too...

    Is it worth it to order hatching eggs in November??

    Is it worth it to order hatching eggs through the mail in November? (I live in Virginia) I want to order quail hatching eggs but should I take the risk of them getting chilled? Does anyone have experience with how much this will affect the hatch rate?

    Japanese Quail questions

    Howdy, I'm new here. I have quail but they're young and still indoors as my hutch isn't QUITE ready for them (I want to make alterations and want to make them before moving them into it, as it'd probably be stressful to get them used to being in it only to pluck them out for a time while I alter...

    Quail Crimes and Quail Help

    Hello! I have a quail who seems to be causing issues. She has been starting to try and peck my other hens in the eyes. They are the same hens that she had flocked with for a while. The only thing that’s different is the age difference. I was told she was a jumbo coturnix (she is not) and that...

    Quail swollen joint

    Hey guys! I have a little quail who has had a swollen joint on one leg. It has had mild improvements but was curious on other folks opinions. I don’t have an avian vet in the area. I just want to make sure she is doing well and improves.

    Jumbo Coturnix sexing

    Hey guys! I just got some jumbo coturnix. The person who I bought them from said that jumbos cannot be sexed. They are white… so obviously these cannot be feather sexed. But can’t they be vent sexed? I have had only standard but would imagine it’s the same?

    High chance of failure since humidity was high?

    Hello everyone. I am an amateur hatcher myself (this is my first incubation...ever), and was brought in to the hobby when my friend gave me 6 Coturnix eggs. So far, 2 have shown no development, and were cast out, and the other 4 are cooking away! 2 are fairly close to hatching, I would say day...

    Quail with Eye and Ear Problem

    Recently my coturnix quail developed a squinty, irritated eye. Now I found his ear covered in a scab-type material with his ear hole clogged. I cleaned the area with saline and applied a little bit of Triple Polysporin, but I didn't want to dig anything out of his ear just in case. My regular...

    I have a question for anyone who can answer... The last four eggs that have hatched, all late, have been pure white quail, and smaller than most that have hatched so far. I have also had to help 2 of them hatch as there were shell issues trapping them in. The question: is there anything in...

    Rotating the male as alternative to polyamory?

    Forgive my post title, it's the best I could come up with. I have been contemplating getting chickens for years, mostly for the eggs, but my recent move into a neighborhood with a HOA put the nail in that coffin. After some research, I've learned of the potential of Cortunix, and so I've decided...

    Can I handle quail when I’m sick?

    I know. This is quite a silly question. I’m just wondering if I can touch my quail while I have a fever, because I don’t want them to get sick. Thank you in advance :)
