I feel like I'm addicted to chickens...!!!:love
Anyways, just this past Sunday I popped 72 eggs into the incubator!
I'm using a Brinsea Ovaeasy 100. This thing has been amazing and I'm almost always at a high hatch/success rate. The last round i did only had 2 eggs out of 54 that didn't...
I just now set 56 of my own quail eggs, plus 10 guinea eggs, and in a week I'll add 11 +/- LARGE breed chicken eggs to hatch-along with the guineas. I've also got 3 turkey eggs that go in lockdown Sunday for a planned CHRISTMAS hatch!!! :bun:jumpy:yesss:
Edited: 59 quailies & 12 guineas...
I'm looking to y'alls expertise to help me eliminate some of these eggs, & clean out the incubators so I don't have any explosions along the way.

Time For A Quail Hatch-A-Long!
1. Put your eggs in the incubator on Tuesday 10/29/19
2. If you have any other species (chickens,ducks,turkeys,etc.) then put them in the incubator to match up with Sunday 11/17/19 (the hatch day)
3. Have fun!!!:thumbsup

Hey all! So I can't believe no ones started this thread yet so I thought I would! I know the northern hemispheres heading into Autumn/fall/winter so things are getting quiter on the hatch front, but there's surely plenty of us southerners heading into spring to hatch!
I have a mixed breed incubation goin on, it's now day 22.5, almost 48hrs ago my 1st chic hatched & is practically dry. 6hrs ago I had another hatch & is still wet. I have 3 that have pipped and are showing small signs of starting the zip process. Can I remove the dry chic to the brooder now...
So yesterday at about dinner time i heard the egg chipring ever so slightly. I thought wow it's finally hatching! There is no external pip yet, but it sounds strong (It's been 14 hours since i first heard it). I dont now what to do so if anybody knows what to do, or if this is normal?
I just put 6 of my Coturnix quail's eggs into the bator today. Last year I tried with 24 shipped eggs and only got 1 hatch. But this year I am pretty excited to have my own quails laying fertile eggs!!! Not sure how high the fertility rates are but we shall find out! I also have a friend who...

Will anyone be hatching eggs in October?
I have a local breeder collecting some Hmong eggs for me this week, I'm collecting a few F1 Olive Egger eggs from my own flock, and then I "accidentally" won some Bresse eggs at auction and I've never incubated shipped eggs before.
So, basically I'm...

Welcome to a journal of my Welsh Harlequin eggs.
I will take photos of some of the eggs as they grow and go along but not all of them as I set 32. That's just too many to put on here. So I will pick a few eggs when I candle and put them all up.
It is important to note that these will be my...
