    I thought I'd get back into coturnix quail after the local raccoons and opossums killed the 40+ I had. The coons and critters are dead now. and nothing bothers the chickens anymore. I ordered 21 quail eggs and after two weeks looks like all but three were duds.

    I want to order a bunch more from multiple sources, but wasn't sure how many eggs I could fit in the bator. I know the specifications say somewhere around 60, but I know people stack, double stack and tripple stack the eco 20. So I was wondering how many I could fit in the incubator. Any experience putting more than 60 Coturnix eggs in one?
