    I don't know anything about quail. Perhaps if you edited the subject line to include the topic is quail you will get some responses.

    When I had them, I collected them several times a day. I turned them twice a day just like my other eggs. I stored them pointy end down just like my other eggs. I'd say the only thing I did differently was to set them sooner than I might a chicken or something else. I didn't let them get past 5 days old. It's not based on fact, only on preference and only because the shells are so dang thin I didn't feel leaving them any longer would do them much good.
