Bobwhite with Chicken Eggs?

    Considering that bobwhites hatch on day 23 and chickens day 28, I'd be switching the bobwhites out to a hatcher on day 20, but other than that, can they be incubated together?

    I was given 21 fertile chicken eggs today and a boatload of fertile bobwhite eggs. I'd love to incubate both, but only have one 'bator available.


  2. Chickens are 21 days...

    So many types of poultry, so many opportunities for error!

    I'd set the quail eggs two days before the chickens and then they should all hatch on the same day [​IMG]

    Oh, man. My mind is cooked. LOL

    I've been thinking duck eggs for WAY too long.

    Thanks, every one.
