I have Jumbo Coturnix. I understand few of these birds ever go broody. If I selectively breed for broodyness will that work? Is there anyone else who has tried or is trying to do this? I think its a bit sad that they rarely go broody to reproduce. Yes, I have incubators, but I'd much prefer chick to be raised by their own mothers. Also I've had an issue with an incubator this above! I don't think its a brand. My last hatch of chicken chicks, all died just before they pipped or after except one. The one that hatched had to hatch outside of the incubator before it seemed to be very lethargic. It died at 4 days old. Now out of 24 quail eggs I've had only 3 hatch. 3 More pipped & died in the incubator with their beaks at the holes, no visible cause why. 1 pipped, zipped & bled to death. 3 hatched, one died. One of these hatches was 2 days later. It had to be moved to the brinsea eco because again it seemed lethargic. I'm suspecting lack of ventilation, there is one hole in the top of the inky. As of yet the others are still in the incubator & nearly a week late, They will be being thrown away soon. I found a lot of embryo's dead in the shell that had died during lockdown. At first I suspected the temp, but have gone to lengths to ensure it cannot dramatically increase or decrease. All the eggs were postal. I've always had good hatches in the brinsea, This inky's terrible & I've lost about 3 hatches & only had 2 that were successful & all weak chicks.
