    Hello,

    Well I have just made an order for a dozen of fertile Italian coturnix quail eggs!
    I have setup my incy ( Brinsea Mini Eco Incubator ) and everything seems well:

    - Temp : 99.5F
    - Humidity: 40%

    They should arrive on Tuesday!

    Will keep this posted!

    Quote:That should do the trick for anything "Coturnix"! Then you have to boost the humidity to 65-70%. Then wait....about 5 days.

    Hmmm...Italian coturnix...I don't have any of those.....A coturnix is a coturnix is a coturnix.

    I have received the dozen of quail eggs. All came brilliantly packed and none with detached air cells.

    I shall post a few pics in a bit. [​IMG]

    I was looking elsewhere and they said it could hold six eggs. Is it big enough to do 12 safely? Will you have to manually turn them and does that mess up the heat/humidity too much?

    Thanks!!!
