Hello,

Quail take 18 days to hatch? I put them in at 3 am (AM...yes...lol...I work nights) Tuesday morning (the 16th). These are bob white eggs.

The bator is staying right at 100 F. I have the 1588 hova-bator with turner. I also have a 1602 hova-bator for hatching. When to switch bators is the main question.

Anything else I need to know?

Thanks!

Yes... Generally 23 days, so stop turning at 20-21 days (sometime on the 6th or 7th of Oct).

Our Bobwhite egg shells are white and quite easy to see inside. You can candle them basically whenever, but I usually do mine on day 10.

You can stop turning on day 20 - they take 23-24 days to hatch. Good luck.

That's what I do, too... the Bobwhites are the easiest to see into - pure white. I just hold the light over the top of them in the turner. Day 10, then just before putting them in the hatcher.
