    This is my third time incubating quail eggs and i am just now discovering that people are not turning their eggs for the first couple of days, is this true?

    I’m not a quail expert but I’d think that as long as they aren’t shipped eggs that it’s totally fine to turn them everyday. :)

    Since they are shipped let them rest for 24 hours, i’d start turning them on day 3, if they were my eggs. :D
