While at the feed store this morning someone gave my kids a fresh egg from the quail pen. They said it's probably fertile since she has both male & female quail in the pen. We have a bantam hen at home that just went broody that we were going to set with some standard-sized chicken eggs. Can we have her incubate the quail egg too? When should we place the quail egg under her so it will hatch along with the chicken chicks? Will the quail egg stay viable until that time? Please let me know what you think, thank you!
