I have one of my button quail hens in a separate environment than the other quail with her roo, since he is aggressive to the others. I've noticed that most of the day, at least one of them was inside the little house I made them out of a shoebox. They have about seven eggs in there by now, with the hen probably still adding eggs. I know freshly laid eggs should be left in room temperature for a day. But these quail sometimes sit next to each other and take a nap out of the house, or eat and drink at the same time. Do they have to be sitting on the eggs 24/7 in order for them to hatch? I'm not sure if this is logical or not but here in southwest florida the weather is pretty hot so maybe in the quail home the eggs are being incubated? Just a theory... All answers appreciated!
