    I'm sorry if this is posted someplace already but I can't find it. I just got my new incubator a brinsea mini advance with turner and I have never hatched before. I'm getting jumbo coturnix quail eggs soon and I need to set the incubator settings.
    I need:
    -Temperature? (99.5f-101f?)
    -How often to set the egg turner and what angle?
    -do I use the cooling feature?
    -do jumbo coturnix fit the quail insert ok or are they too big?
    - do I fill half the water reservoir at the start and just make sure it is topped up? Increase at day 14?

    I am finding lots of info for chickens but can't seem to find settings for quail with this specific incubator. Thank you for your help!

    Okay so after more reading I decided to change the settings to 5 and 120. A few people said they've had great hatch rates with these turner settings.

    Just saw your post! I hope I didn't mess up but I just went with the brinsea directions.I set temperature to 100F, I have the turner set at 60 minutes, cooling for two hrs per day and angle is 4. I filled the reservoir half full and have had to top it up pretty regularly. I will shut the cooling off and the turner off on day 14 and fill both sides of the water reservoir, add a mat after removing the turning tray. Mine are due to hatch this weekend. Fingers crossed. I found so many different opinions on what settings to use!
