    I can't contain myself my quail eggs have been in incubating for about two weeks now, I have had a few close calls like temp got way too hot 110 deg then, way to cold 77 deg thought my birds where hard boiled! So tonight I candled them and WE HAVE MOVMENT IN ABOUT 70 percent YES!!!! I'm pretty proud! I'm gonna be a dad!! Lol kinda.

    That's fantastic! Congrats! How exciting--just a few more days for you!!

    I've got chickens--just a few--incubating right now, and one is starting to zip. It's the best thing in the world--such an adrenalin/endorphin rush!! Good luck with your hatch!
