i am considering things of different homemade bators for if/when i might want to try incubating eggs from my coturnix after they are up and going.

here is the still air version: http://wwwhighlonesomeranch.blogspot.com/2013/04/build-homemade-still-air-incubator-for.html

here is the version with a fan: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/homemade-incubator-2


has anyone used/tried one of these types with coturnix? i think i could come up with a pretty good little turner for the little eggs. someone i follow on youtube has just hatched out some quail in an aquarium so i am hoping he replies to my comment of what exactly he did and what hatch rate he got.

thanks!

No reason you can't do it. You can make a bator out of just about anything.

This used to be my beer cooler in the garage until it stopped cooling things.

Oh and there is no good reason to run a still air incubator. A pc fan costs less than $10 if you don't have one laying around. You power the fan with a charger cord for an old flip phone type cell phone.
