    Does anyone know if you can incubate quail eggs and chicken eggs together, at the same time?
    Thanks

    I have. I have staggered hatches. Right now I have 14 quail, 3 rosecomb and 5 bantam EE in the brooder. I had no problem hatching them together, just have to make sure you know when each will hatch. I have two incubators so move them to the hatching one when they have 4 days left.

    If you have a forced air incubator no problem. If still air not a good idea, as the temp, is not the same for all eggs.
