    My DD has 2 pet pharoh quail and she came running in today with their first egg....and put it in my bator... [​IMG] I couldn't tell her no but I would have rather blown it out and put it in the egg bowl.

    Is the the same amount of time for a quail to hatch as a chicken?

    Youll have to look up that kind of quail as they very button are about 16-17 days and cortunix are 18 or so days but some types can go up to 23 days .. probly youres will hatch in 16-23 days [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Good luck

    Ahh, they hatch sooner! Well, this will be our first. I haven't ever much been into quail but they do lay really pretty eggs [​IMG] That is why I wanted it blown out and in the egg bowl.

    Will they lay every day like a chicken?

    thanks for the quick response btw

    Thanks ~ I will read over it.

    The first time I heard these guys "calling" I was stumped trying to figure out what just made that sound. They don't sound like the bob white quail that run around wild here. LOL I figured it out though and I like it. It sounds neat.

    If she lays another egg tammrow and the next you should put them in the bator too , single baby quail are sad little things
