    I'm pretty psyched! I went to add water to the incubator to boost the humidity for my quail to hatch tomorrow and I noticed there was a busted egg. I picked up to look closer at it, thinking it had "exploded" with a bacterial infection like 3 eggs before it. It peeped at me! LOL

    I put it back and closed the bator, which returned to it's temp within the same minute. I just checked and I already have one quail out. Boy, are those guys small.

    Just wanted to share! [​IMG]

    A&M Giant White Coturnix. Nothing fancy, but it's still the first non-chicken/turkey bird I have hatched.

    They are pretty. I have some and they are beefy babies! I have a batch from the same day and the Texas AM are twice the size of the regular coturnix.
