    So I am all proud to tell everyone I got my 1st incubator. Nothing fancy. In fact it is a mini incubator that came with 4 quail eggs. The guy says this model was popular when he was a kid and this guy was in his 60s. So I have a classic (but it was new) model. I hope my newbies hatch!!!!

    Just a little advice I hope you don't need. Sometimes those smaller ones don't hold temps and humidity very well, but, you never know.

    Those dont tend to work to well but there are a few people that have been able to get something to hatch, one even like 2 weeks ago. But be prepared for some issues with it it dosnt have anything to regulate the temps and no insulation.
