    DH, trying to be helpful, put my button quail eggs in the same bator as my chicken eggs (the BO eggs have been in 3 days). Is something going to go wrong now? My other bator hasn't arrived, and by the time I realized the quail were in there they'd been in for a few hours...

    I don't think there will be a problem. When your other bator comes and you get it to desired temp., just transfer them over.

    That's what I'd suggest also - just move them over after the new bator gets there and you get it set up.

    Button Quail only take 16 days so you will be fine. I did the same thing but I made a divider inside my bator. So when they hatched the quail was on one side the big chicks on the other.
