    Just candled my Quail eggs and guess what I saw in all but one? yep movement , 29 good and one clear! they are due to go into the hatcher on the 8th! What do I do to get ready for them? Feed, special waterer, special brooder? Any advice would be extremely helpful! To be perfectly Frank, I fully expected to kill them off, from a lack of knowledge, Thank goodness they have made it this far! I went out today and got a little giant incubator to use as a hatcher today as i also have chicken eggs, SS 's from bargain that has a ways to go yet so needed somewhere to hatch these little guys. So what do I do now, I have a rabbit cage (new) or can I use a fish take i got a twenty gallon one, that i can set up.[​IMG] Geez guys what do I do now! Please tell me!
    Thanks much, Sandy
    Im so excited im beside myself![​IMG]

    You definitly need a quail waterer. You will have to put rocks in it for a few days to keep them from drowning. You can use anything for a brooder really just like chickens. Other than them drowning theres not much to worry about.
