    What is your room humidity? That would affect your incubator. You may have to use a bigger bowl/bigger sponge. Are you just beginning to incubate the eggs?

    There have been times, with duck eggs, where I have laid soaked towels over the incubator at hatch time.

    I have tiny bantams that I use to hatch quail. Also some Japanese quail will brood.

    Below is one of mine from last summer.

    Can you take a picture of your incubator showing the bowl and sponge?
