    I set 30 quail eggs on feb 8 into my 1588 w/1610 and then on the15th set 90 coturnix eggs for a staggered hatch.
    I AM UP TO MY ELBOWS IN CHICKS....THOSE LITTLE DICKENS
    I was forced to make a homemade brooder because GQF did not ship me all of my equipment. The homemade brooder seems to be AOK for now until I get the 0534 brooders parts and change over.

    The hardest thing is to go against human nature and refrain from helping chicks in their struggle to hatch. I guess that so far I've had 75% success rate with none dying. Wish me luck. Jon in Lexington, Ky
