    Well I just wanted to introduce myself, I am backwoodsman ,and I live in middle TN. I joined BYC wanting to learn about raising quail. I already have several hens ( Barred Plymouth Rock) they are beautiful birds. Now I am wanting to expand into quail. I am completely new to quail. I have been doing alot of research on quail and housing. I was wondering if someone could direct me to a forum that discusses incubators. I would not spending $600 or $700 to start off with.
    thank you

    My neighbor is raising quail... both the bob white and the Japanese. The Japanese seem to be about 4 times as fertile as the bob Whites and mature about twice as fast. He moves the chicks from the incubator to a brooder then to a 4 stage pen where they are moved from one section to the other as they mature. They are laying eggs by the time they reach the third pen.
