In the Brooder
- May 23, 2012
Yes you can make one easy if your handy, Iv made a truck load... if you buy one look for a hovabator and lean away from little giant in my opinion. look for a forced air model. (with a fan) A broody chicken will sometimes hatch quail eggs. some do it well. Most will break the eggs getting on and off the nest. Then theres the exposing the quail to the chicken question that is always a touchy subject that Id rather not get into. A "can I keep quail with chickens" search will bring up results like a rash! If you decide to build a cooler-bator, post up, we can help you here... Good Luck, BillHow much is an incubator if I may ask. I'm not looking for top of the line or anything. Just something that could work well. Can you make your own? Yes I mean putting it in with a female chicken. I have 3 hens right now that are on the eggs. I left the quail eggs with one of them. Hopefully they will hatch. Is there a reason why quails won't hatch them but chickens will?
