    I have eggs in the incubator and on day 14 of their incubation period, I notice that I only have the temperature at 95 degrees! UGGGG! Cannot believe I didn't catch this immediately. Will any of my quail hatch? Have I lot the whole batch? Any advice would be appreciated!

    you should be able to candle them and actually see movement at this point with the exception of really dark or mottled color eggs...I'd candle them and see if anyone is movin' around then increase temp. & humidity and lockdown. They may still hatch depending on other conditions. Or you could skip the candle and lock them down. If they don't hatch by day 26 (lower temp. may have just slowed growth taking them longer to hatch), I'd say time to try again. best wishes to you...I hope you still get a hatch.
