Hello fellow BYC'ers. I'll do my best to document a side-by-side comparison of hatching in 2 different incubators. Seeing how everyone on these forums were raving about JMF line of quails I decided to give JMF a call and order eggs for hatching. Unfortunately they were backlogged on shipments but gave me a name of a local breeder that carries JMF line. Long story short - I ended up with 4 dozen of eggs that are VERY big, looking neat and healthy and going into 2 incubators. It was also a pickup in person, so I am hoping for a decent hatch rate. Setup 1. Brinsea Mini Advance. 12 eggs with automatic turning. Temp is set at 99.8 F, no cooling, 30 mins rotation. Setup 2. Hova-Bator picture window model 1583, egg turner with quail racks, 3 dozen of eggs, maintaining temp between 99.5 and 101 F to the best of my abilities. Filled water container #1 (out of 4) - humidity is around 50%. Will wait for it to evaporate and try container #3 instead, which is smaller and should keep humidity lower. Going good so far. First observations: Brinsea has a quail egg disk that fits larger eggs no problem. Quail egg racks that came with Hova-Bator are somewhat small for the eggs I have and some of the larger eggs do not fit properly in them. In addition quail egg racks came in a crappy quality with lots of plastic parts sticking out of them (part of molding process) that I had to remove. Pictures to follow. p.s. I should probably sell those 2 bators and get Brinsea Octagon 20 Advanced. Thought in brewing.
