    Okay its now officially day 7 for the Button quail eggs. Those dern things are hard to candle. My light is too big so I wasn't able to candle them. But no smells yet so I guess we're not rotten at least. [​IMG]

    AND I'm officially on Day 2 of the serama egg incubating! And the person I bought them from won at the Gold Coast Classic show. Reserve Best in Show - Cock; Best Cock; Reserve Cock; Best Hen; Reserve Hen; and Reserve Pullet. Let's hope they hatch!!!

    Humidity has stayed around 50 - had one drop to 40 and added water and raised to 70, but has leveled out. Temp has stayed between 98-101 degrees, except for a drop on Saturday to 86 while I was setting the serama eggs. Using a Little Giant still air.
