    Got your brooder ready and their food at hand, you could wake up to babies. Well my 1st early hatches were about 24 hours after locking down.

    Sending Good Luck your way.

  4. Hope you get a great hatch, we have some that stop turning on Sunday I think. I love the way they hatch like popcorn popping

    Coturnix. I bought a dozen at a rummage sale back in September. Ended up with 3 roos and 9 hens. My very first experience with quails EVER. [​IMG] Anyway, thought I'd try and hatch some.....it worked. I'm hooked [​IMG]
