    I have my incubators in my house right now ok,last night before we went to bed we decided to turn off the airconditoner and open the windows,also i had some quail egg that wasn't in the incubator on top of it,I think it was about a dozen,ok I have 2 incubators in one room some what near a window 1 incubator is a little giant and the other is my homemade one"which nothing could get in that"
    Something ate all my quail egg but 1 that was on top of the incubator [​IMG] and open up my little giant up but didn't mess with any eggs,What could it have been?


    Thanks sooooo much,

    If it opened the incubator, I'm guessing a raccoon. If you can secure where the eggs are or the incubator, you'l need to, because it will be back with friends til it finds it can't get in.

    Do you have screens to your windows ? That is scary that predators are coming in your house when you are asleep at night! For me that would be totally unacceptable.
