    Hi Everyone,

    This is my first time hatching 120 quail eggs bought from Ebay online shipping, hatched 40 of 120 eggs.
    After around 20 days, they hatched with temperature 99 -100 degree and 65 humidity. After around 4 days of hatching, the rest of the eggs trying to open the eggshell with crying or making noises but did not make it and just died in there. Please help me with your experience for now and in the future hatching to reduce the dying ones that trying to open eggshell.

    Thank You!

    If you order your quail eggs online there really is no way to reduce the amount of unhatched eggs. Just keep the humidity and heat level.

    Happy Hatching!!!
