    I had my hum. spike to 95% over night on day 14 of my quail eggs....did they all drown?

    no spikes in humidity are harmless. Its the average that matters. Hatch time is the only time it starts to being critical.

    Just wanted to give an update.....2 of the 6 hatched. The 4 that didn't hatch, didn't develop....almost like non-fertle eggs. So I am pleased that the humity didn't kill them.

    Nice thing about quail... no matter what we do to try to ruin a hatch, they pop out anyway! [​IMG]
