I have Texas A&M white cortunix, and button quail eggs in my bator. It is day 13 on both. How long does it take them to hatch? I thought it was 16 or 17 days, but now I'm not so sure. These will be my first quail, and I don't want to mess up!
Quote:Oh I hope so!! I ordered 12 cortunix eggs, and received 18. One was broken upon arrival, and 10 were scrambled, that I could tell. Day 7 had one with a blood ring, and now there is one of the 6 left that is clear, but looks like one of the others is too, just can't tell for sure. That leaves me with 4. 3 deffinitely are developing, and the other is too dark to see through. I also have 20 button quail eggs, but I can't see into those at all. I hope I get at least a pair of each.
I'm so afraid I will mess them up!! I thought it was supposed to be 17 days for quail?
Please disregard my last post. I did a search on "hatching quail," and included some author names. Lots of good info, like: lower temps and higher humidity than for chicken eggs works better. And the incubation period is usually around 16 days, unless your temps are off. I love the search function on this site!
