    i need to know....

    temp/humidity

    days they take to hatch/on what day to stop turning

    should i candle them? if so what should i expect and on what days?

    care for the eggs. are there things that are more critical to the survival?

    how different is it than hatching chicken eggs?

    general hatch rate of a good batch

    how long does it take them to mature?

    you help will be appreciated! i want my first button quail hatching experience to be as successful as possible! i need all the advice i can get on raising, feeding, and caring. i've done a lot of research on them prior to buying the eggs, but i really want all of this to go well! I've hatched chicken eggs before, nit this is my 1st time with quail eggs.


    thanks!
