    well this is my 2nd hatch but the 1st wasn't so successful, any advice what to do before I receive the eggs(tomorrow).

    I have a mixture of Ducks, Chickens and Quails, I know they will hatch on different days. What should I do when I receive them and during the hatch?????????

    its going to be hard to hatch them together but not impossible. I don't know a thing about quail eggs but duck eggs do better (mine anyhow) If I mist them with water twice a day, just don't spray the chicken eggs, this will sorta help compensates for the different humidity levels required for chicken and duck eggs. How many of each are you getting and what breeds?
