Can I incubate quail and chicken eggs at the same time?
Yes, but the quail eggs will hatch at 18 days. So you'll want to set your chicken eggs a few days before the quail, unless you have a separate bator for hatching in. Also, I'd be worried about the size differential when they hatch, so you'll want to watch carefully. I incubate ducks and quail together, but I hatch them in a separate incubator at separate times so the ducks don't trample the quail. Quail babies are TEENY.
what kind of quail? my bobs take 22-24 days I have a few gambles in the bator right now they are on day 21 should be here the next day or 2
Oops--that's right. We have coturnix, and they are 18 days. I forgot that other varieties have different incubation times.
