    Im fixing to order about 500 jumbo coturnix and 250 texas A&Ms I was wondering if their eggs will fit in a gqfs incubator quail rack or will I have to use chicken racks?Or chukar racks?I used to raise quail before but due to an injury had to sell all of my "stuff" and birds.I also just used a basic incubator that held 120 eggs and am now going to the big cabinet one.Any info on how to use and set up a gqf 1502 will also be appreciated.
    I used to raise standard coturnix and bobwhites.I have no experience with the jumbos or a&ms yet other than talking to others and they tell me they are just about them same as far as raising and caring for. Thank you in advance.

    You may have to put the smaller eggs in beside the super fat eggs, but it should be fine otherwise.
