Hello,

Just added two quails eggs into the incubator along with some chicken eggs. Will that be ok even though it might hatch a few days later? Not sure which egg its from because I have some of the Valley Quail with the Northern Bobwhites and the egg is like a chicken egg color, brown with dark brown spots. EXACLTY like a normal chicken egg, just 1/8th the size. Haha.

Anyways, that shouldn't be a problem correct?

Yes, it will be fine as long as you have a different hatcher... Due to the humidity change and since the eggs have different incubation periods... I have done this before with chicken, coturnix and button quail eggs all in 1 incubator at the same time... Currently I have bobwhite eggs and ringneck pheasant eggs in my incubator at the same time.
