    Yes, very local. My quail are living in their pen in the garage :) I set 4. They're not laying very well right now
    But I got the eggs I hatched originally from a local guy in Spokane. I also bought a few hatchlings from him.

    I'm in Sunny Florida, they do fine with heat.
    I have another $4 timer that is hooked to a fan and it comes on about 10 and off at about 4 , just for the hottest hours of the day.

    I have heard of 25%-85% hatch rates with quail, I hope I get at least one!

    I could use some "veggie" seeds......
    If I get some of TJCHICKENS hatched I'll have some bantam blue eggs to trade.....

    It's because in some incubators, a read from the center versus the side, can be a full 5 degrees off. Just depends on fans, circulation, and what kind of bator you have.

    Oh no! That's frustrating! [​IMG]

    Silver laced wyandottes are beautiful birds. I hope to obtain some of those.
