    Does anyone know a good decent incubator that will hold quail eggs?Im only looking to have like 30 eggs so maybe something small.It would be nice if it had an automatic egg turner but not nesicery.It would be best if it were less then $150.

    Like Wifezilla, I made my own (see here), and it works great on all eggs. I currently have 60 quail in there right now. Some of the homemade ones have turners. I'm making a new one that will fit automatic turners (2) and I'll use my current one as a hatcherr.

    I have a little giant with egg turner that cost me 50 from craigslist used.
    it was worth the 50 dollar. I got more then 60 bird one time and I have hatch more then150 birds out of that thing.
    Quails are pretty easy to hatch, you don't need an expensive incubator.
    Find a feed store you can buy them new to for 100 new. The eggturner and incubator. And build a airfan 37 dollar in this helps a lot too.
    Goodluck

    Seems quail will hatch if you just leave them in a warm room, so if you can hatch chickens out of it, you can hatch quail out of it.

    I had poor hatches with several types of incubators until I got a Brisnea Eco 20.
