    I have been incubater Coturnix Quail eggs, and 2 of my chickens just layed eggs that I'm pretty sure are fertile... I was wanting to know what I should put the temp and humidity on. Right now I have it on 99.5 to 100 for the temp, and 50% for the humidity... should I change anything?

    No need to change anything temp and humifity are right for chicks

    the only issue will be lockdown

    Chicks take 21 days to hatch

    Unless you have an extra bator you can use as hatcher
    remember you will raise the humidity for the eggs you have there now

    while the chicken eggs will not be ready

    Good idea to wait , make sure incubator is clean & sun dry before you set the chicken eggs

    store your chicken eggs in a nice fresh area if posible put them in a egg carton small end down and tilt one side of the carton 2 times a day switching sides.
