    I currently have 2 Ameraucana eggs in a home made incubator on day 14 looking good. Yesterday I received 15 quail eggs in the mail that have been resting for 24 hours. Any advice on successfully incubating both in the same incubator at the same time? 3 of the quail eggs were damaged so I'll be setting 12 today and I really want to give them the best chance.

    If you had a spare incubator/hatcher you could have just moved the americauna eggs there for lockdown.

    If you've only got the one incubator (which I'm assuming you do?) then i guess you could just keep them all together and hope for the best, obviously the 2 current eggs will hatch much sooner but as long as the chicks don't go crazy and start kicking/crushing the quail eggs you may be OK, just don't leave them in for too long.
