    I heard that some have incubated and hatched an egg using a heating pad.
    Will this work on a Quail egg?

    Quote:The problem is trying to keep the temperature constant. Someone on here has incubated an egg with an electric pan. I wouldn't recommend it, however, if you want to do it as an experiment, by all means go for it

    Good luck [​IMG]

    I thought it was crazy enough when we retrieved a chick from a cold egg left behind by the hen and I put him in my armpit for nine hours! He turned out to be just fine, but thought I was his mom! He became a big mean rooster, and flogged everyone but me! [​IMG] He was out of the egg though.

    An egg in her bra? [​IMG] Pretty amazing!

    i use a heating pad instead of a heat lamp in my brooder... not sure it would be hot enough to incubate?? well it's hotter than body temp because we feel it.. might work... i would try it on some barnyards or your own eggs before you spend a lot of money on specific breeds.....
