    Hi all, I'm new here, and also a quite new to the raising of quails too. I have had lots of luck since buying my Coturnix quail in early dec 2011, So far every thing is going good and getting lots of eggs. I am thinking now of starting to incubate eggs to hatch for meat etc, Is there any one with experience in this and are there any tricks or information I need before I start. Also can I simply make my own incubator or should I buy one. Thks...

    Welcome to the quail forums! Incubating is a lot of fun and a great experience also. If you have the no-how, and can build your own incubator, well that will surely save some cash. I found it easier to purchase one that can do all the things you need it to do to get the best out of my hatches, although I am not that crafty to build one myself! [​IMG]

    Do some reading on line here or dig thru the archives, tons of info on hatching quail here. Or you can ask as you go! Good luck!

    [​IMG] its easy enough to build an incubator, best thing is to search google for "homemade egg incubator" you'll get tons of video's. Buying one is the easiest.

    be sure to post if you have any questions!
