    Welcome to the quail forums!

    Gambels take 21 to 23 days to hatch. Temp 99.5 to 99.7 Humidity 50% to 55% during incubation, 65% to 70% at lock down.

    Good luck!

    X2... Please pay attention to Leyla here...Out of countless hatches, I find Gambel's and Blue Scale quail among the toughest to hatch.... Well, I have my lowest hatch rates with these anyway..... I love the looks of the birds and they are not something you see everyday.... Even in this crowd.... good luck and keep us posted!
