    for simply rule:

    you need to put the egg inside a *room* that can keep:

    temp: 99-101 deg in F for 21 days
    humidity : 35-45% for 18 days
    turn the egg at least 3 times a day for 18 days

    when it come to 19-21 days

    keep temp the same: 100 deg in F
    humidity 60-75%
    no more turning
    and don't open the bator at all cost (that's many people's rule)

    ups, pamperedpoultry's right, that's for chicken.

    not for quail, quail is faster to hatch. [​IMG]
