Okay my first coturnix quail hatch did not go very well. I had 9 birds hatch out at different times. Seven of them died within two hours after hatching. Of the two chicks I had left one was perfectly fine and the other didn't have eyes! I contacted the breeder and he said that I could consider getting a different male because if they were siblings it could be the cause of the birth defects. The blind one died two days later. The other one is still perfectly fine. What amazes me with this hatch is that every single eggs the was fertile hatched but with chickens and other birds usually you will have a few eggs that have a perfectly developed chick in them that just doesn't hatch! Is this normal for quail? Is there anything else I can do to have a better hatch other than find another male? Do you think that I just had an unsuccessful hatch that won't usually happen? Thanks for your help.
