I had some babies this morning on day 25! I think I need to figure out how to bump my sportsman incubator up 1 degree. Anyway, they are cute little things. I had forgotten how small quail are when they hatch.

To give you an idea of how small they are this is my 7 year old daughter's hands in this next picture.

It was not good, about 44%. These were eggs bought off Ebay that got shipped through USPS. I started with 50 eggs and culled them down to 28 when I candeled them at 10 days. I put 28 in the hatcher and had 22 hatch. Just for reference, I had 18 guinea eggs that I picked up locally and hatched 15 out of 17. The two that didn't hatch weren't fertile.
