Quote:Ooo, TheMartianChick, that's brilliant! What humidity did you use for hatching? I'm on day 18 right now. Quote:Good luck with the quail! What are you doing with them once they hatch? Do you have an aviary or do you let them free range? I have been a quail momma for all of 8 days now! I plan to keep them in a combination of cages, both inside of my barn and outside in my garden and will likely raise them for eating eggs, hatching eggs and to play with the colors and breeds. I do have an old dog run that with a little work could probably be used as an aviary. However, I am sure that the local feral cat population would think of it as a fast food restaurant! I kept the humidity between 40 and 50% during incubation and between 60 and 70% for the quail hatch. Much of the reading that I have been doing seems to indicate that the quail eggsdo better with higher humidity than chicken eggs. Out of the first batch that hatched, none seemed to have any problems getting out of the shell. Once all of the viable one had hatched, I broke open the rest of the eggs and only found one other that had developed and died along the way. So I figure that the incubator did a pretty good job of developing all of the eggs that actually had a shot at life.
