    To answer the previous question, you need the turner with the quail rails, and they don't dump them out :)
    It's a lot of eggs to turn by hand if you don't buy that!

    My question: Is there a quail call that works for coturnix? When they're little we move them and spread them around by whistling...well, except for me. I can't whistle.
    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Here is a photo of a female and male Bobwhite. Male Bobwhites have a white mask, females have a brown mask. Also, Bobwhites are considered "new world quail" and Coturnix are considered "old world quail". Here is a link for Bobwhites.

    Woo! =) Just won some assorted coturnix eggs off ebay the other day.

    I'm hacking together a styrofoam cooler incubator with ReptiTemp 500R thermostat. We'll see how I do.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned before but is there a way to get this thread stickied? I'm always running to this thread to see what to do next and sometimes it takes a while to find.
