I just don't get it... DH put 100 quail eggs in his homemade incubator & then never looked at them until I reminded him it was hatch time. This is the incubator we had so much trouble with last hatch because we couldn't get the humidity to come down & my purchased brahma chicks drowned in their eggs. He got frustrated & said whatever...and to me "don't mess with it anymore". I've been peeking at his temps the whole time.....99.5 to 100 degrees & humidity 85% to 95% THE ENTIRE TIME. Yes..readings are accurate. I got frustrated with his attitude & put my 10 bantam eggs in my LG on the same day. Everything perfect...candled a couple of times & everybody progressing as they should...99.5 temp & around 45% humidity the first 18 days...went into lockdown last Thursday & upped humidity to 65%. (dry hatch) The quails started hatching Saturday morning. By that afternoon, there were 91. The 9 that didn't hatch......2 were dead unpipped, fully formed...7 were infertile/clear. I checked. It is now day 22 for me & I have zip...nada...nothing. So now I have to listen to "whenever you're ready, I'll show you how to hatch birds" This coming from someone with 3 hatches under his belt & didn't know that chickens came in more colors than red!!!
