    I hatched quail, and as for trouble shooting? Ravyns right, its not that much different. Theyre teeni tiny is all. I would ask them all the same questions as normal for chicks. Just like your doing, make sure of how stable the bator is, condition of eggs ect.

    Awesome! Happy my first set in the 20 will follow yours! :highfive:
    Yes, Sally, I've had issues here. With shipped eggs, I found this article (I think it's still in my siggy, cus I don't know how to edit it) anyway, this article sounded good and recommended not turning shipped eggs for up to 7 days. I went 5 days and half died in lockdown. Later doing research I found that I was retarding the CAM! Now I only wait 24-48 hours.

    I'm just curious, have you ever tried higher humidity? Again, just curious.

    Sally, I used to only turn 3 times a day until you told me I had to do at least 5. I've turned at least 5xday since you told me that and hatch rate went up!

    Yep... every single one was DIS... air cells did not get big enough and eggs were very full of liquid... :(

    Ugh! Well you're on the right track now. Did you say you're hand turning?
