Hi! I live in southern bc where quail are an abundance. I noticed a nest of 16 eggs in my planter yesterday, i have not seen an adult come to the nest since its been found. Ive been checking regularily. So i have a few questions because i have absolutely no idea about this stuff. Considering its usually 30°c weather where i live, do quail normally sit on their nest, or can/will they hatch on their own? Is it possible this has been abandoned or not viable, is so, how can i tell? I havent touched or disturbed the nest at this point. But id really rather not have rotting eggs right outside my house. Ill wait for these answers to do some more follow up questions!
