    Well I just had some quail eggs in my incubator and I moved them to the hatcher and cleaned out the bator and put it back on the desk i keep it on and put the chicken egg racks back in the turner. Well my grand son took 6 EE eggs off the counter and put them in the incubator and plugged it in he wants more EE's real bad. The only problem is my EE's have only been laying for three weeks. Is there any chance any will hatch?

    Awwwwwwww How Sweet!

    If it were me, I would try and explain a little bout incubation and the chances they may not hatch and go for it!

    My quail are young, and our second egg was fertile so you never know. :)

    Good luck and keep us posted!
