    tonight we bought some quail eggs at an auction and the box they were in did not tell the kind of the quail. we need to kno what kind they are so we can incubate correctly. they are kind of a cream colored brown with darker brown blotches on it

    Most likely they are Corturnix eggs...

    How big are they? Though I would say probably Coturnix as well.

    I would just put them in and let them go until the pip or the longest time needed!

    My neighbors have several kinds of quail and they all look the same to me! LOL
