    The uber tiny ones are button, the larger eggs are coturnix, then yes the duck eggs take a little higher humidity during hatch, but I have a hatcher. It is ok to have it about 50-55% during the incubation as long as I bump it in the hatcher [​IMG] And by the time the quail hatch (23rd of august) they will be all by their lonesome in the bator so no issues there.

    I never thought of the hatcher dah. How long do quail eggs take. I'm on day 21 and still no chicks. Someone is chirping in there some are pipping and at a stand still. I had a temp drop to 87 before I found . Don't know how long it was down, could that slow the process down.

    I just gave a Broody 6 eggs. So hopefully in about 21 days I'll have some hatchlings. Glad to hear I am not the only one still trying to hatch before it gets colder.

    Coturnix eggs take 17 days to hatch give or take, if your temp went down a little, it will delay hatching by a day or so. Coturnix eggs are speckled.

    Valley quail have speckled eggs as well so they have 23 days incubation. Bobwhites have white shell and have 23 days incubation period. If you do have lower temps at any point, they will most likely hatch later. A little higher, or a little temp spike, they will hatch earlier or you can lose some. Good Luck!
