    Part of me thinks you're nuts, a bigger part of me would love to do that! Please post pictures when they hatch and good luck!

    I've let my son talk me into it, so we're gonna try with 24 and see what we come up with lol. I can't imagine hatching out that many but I bet it'd be fun.

    Won't that give trouble when lock down approaches for the coturnix eggs? The bobwhite eggs will still need to be turned and might not appreciate the high humidity?

    The bobwhite eggs will go into a smaller incubator that is already set up.

    I started out with 50 and had no idea what I was getting into but it all worked out.You will lose some but that is alright the strongest will survive and that's what you want.

    I just had 33 hatch last week, James Marie pharaohs and they are so big already I have to split them up into different brooders! They grow so fast and are so big! They are in my living room and they are a noisy bunch too. At about 3 days old I think the boys started crowing.
