    I'm going to set a new batch of turkey eggs next week and wondered if setting about a dozen quail eggs with them would make much difference.I often set a few chicken eggs with my turkeys to hatch at the same time with good results.I wanted to try to get the quail out before the turkeys were ready.I don't think 12 or so quail eggs will hurt.Any ideas or has anyone tried it.The last quail I hatched did great they all popped out at once.I figured that might be a good thing.Thanks in advance,Lisa
