    Hi, I was just curious about this. If it is in the wrong area I am sorry, wasn't sure. So which would be easiest to hatch? Goose, duck, guinea, peafowl, partridge, chicken, turkey, pheasant, swans, qual, etc? I am sure I will get different answers but just curious as to the different opinions. I am new to incubating or new as an adult but its been a long time.

    Coturnix quail are the easiest hatches I have ever had.. you will at least get a few no matter what you do ( it seems)

    Thats hilarious. That will be my luck. I hope I get some qual from the egg swap then. It is first test on my homemade incubator. I am putting in some of my eggs as well.

    I was going to say that (roosters!)--or the easiest type would be eggs straight from your own coop! [​IMG]
