    I have alot of doves but not enough quail. So lets say i get some of my quail eggs and set them under my doves will they hatch them out?

    I have read here but not posted. There was a thread on the quail forum a week or so ago about someone who had doves hatch a couple of quail eggs. Don't see why it wouldn't work, eggs are about the same size and incubation period is within a few days, at least for Coturnix.
