It's been 2 1/2 years since my last incubation! So it's time to put more in again! We decided new years day would be good since we wern't going to be away after that! And could stay with the eggs to turn them =) I have a mix of 12 chicken eggs, all of varying sizes too, I have no idea on the breeds! They came from my partner's mum's place. She has a mix of layer hens and two beautiful roosters, one all black and the other a bluey grey with speckles all over (such a handsome roo!) There is also a few bantoms that hang in there aswell, but none of the eggs I got are THAT small! She also gave us 12 quail eggs to hatch for her, never hatched quail before! When I put them into to set I checked them to see if there was cracks or solid insides. There was a few cracked and one seemed rotten like a marble inside rolling around. So I put in 9. The day after one of them had cracked and oozed a bit. So now I have 8 quail eggs. It is now day 6 and I have kept them tuned 3 times a day, humidity is good and all seems fine so far! The chicken eggs feel a bit more weighty than normal.. ALL of them! so hopefully that means they are all growing!? =D I wont candle them until much further down the track though! The quail eggs are so tiny I can't tell if they have changed or not! They fell very light and one of them likes to roll on to one particular side and is hard to turn to the opposite side, so I lean it on another egg to keep it there. I'm wondering if it's dead/ stuck to the side? Does anyone know a good way to tell if quail eggs are all good? These are the blotchy spotted quail eggs, and I believe they'll be hard to candle. I'm not even sure if there is anything in them at all... but my partners mum really wanted some baby quails! and since her's wont sit.. we were to do it for her! I'll update as time passes and hopefully when it comes.. have some beautiful little babies to share!
