    So I bought two button quail about a month ago and they have been living in a 20 gallon long tank with a reptile/mulch substrate with some fake plants. There is a red breasted Male and a silver Female. The lady we got them from sold them as a breeding pair.
    About 5 days ago the female started laying eggs I let her lay 4 then I pulled them from her and stuck them in an incubator. Its now the second day of incubation and i have been turning them as much as possible maybe 6 times a day. So now for the questions. [​IMG] #1.How likely is it that they are fertile?
    #2.How likely is it that they will hatch and live?
    #3.What colors might the chicks be?
    #4.When can I candle them and how do you suggest I do so?
    #5.Let me know anything else you think is important!!?
    So thanks o much and cant war to hear back!
