    I have some extra quail eggs and the incubator won't be available for another 5 days but I do have a broody polish. She's my smallest hen at around 2-2.5 pounds, do you think she could hatch the quail without breaking the eggs, or should I wait for the bator? (I think the eggs are already several days old, so waiting would put them past a week old for sure)

    if she is that small she might. my dad tried to with a EE and she got so excited, when they hatch she stepped on a lot of them.
