    good hatch!
    Just out of interest, did you hatch them dry or did you increase the humidity? I had much better results with my last dry hatch.

    Thanks

    Thanks! [​IMG] The humidity was at 20-30% first 14 days, then moved to the still air LG hatcher with 50% humidity. We've had another one hatch after i originally posted, so that puts it up to 23 coturnix quail.
