    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows if Mountain quail need different temps and humidities when incubating? Has anyone actually hatched them here? Might get some eggs but there like 50 bucks for 4 so want to be prepared.

    I've hatched them out twice. Same temps and humidity it just takes 24 days for them to hatch out. Next time I plan on hatching out some cortunix quail at the same time. Seems the mountain quail babies I hatched out had a harder time learning to eat. So I figure they can teach them to eat and drink. I have adults now and will let them raise the babies next year for me. Good Luck with them they are beautiful birds.
