    OMG you actually did it! you hatched quail eggs under a broody hen that is awesome, everybody here keeps saying thats bad and that it doesnt work but I always thought that it'd be something cool to try, and now that I see that you were succesful Im totally gonna try it.

    Yeah I am soooooo excited. When you try it just make sure you remove the babies asap. That way they arent likely for the cross contamination everyone worries about. We keep our chickens as healthy as possible and try to avoid any illness but yes It took 26 day which is actually the same amount it took my first hatch of bantys last year to hen hatch but yeah SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY! They are in the brooder in my room! Love the peeps throughout the night its sooooothing LOL. Good luck to all who are hatching. May you have a great hatch and prosper

    I wont be I am keeping them in the house until they are big enough for the outdoor brooder. They are way tooooo tiny to go out there now. All are healthy and happy. PS the last egg has yet to hatch as far as I know it's been 6 or 7 hours since I checked but I will see in the morning. [​IMG]
