    So, three weeks ago we set 50 quail eggs in the Brinsea Octo 20.
    A week into incubation I pulled 7 eggs and 43 were developing.
    The chicks were due on Monday but decided to come on Sunday.
    We ended up with 42 perfect little babies (one, the 43th one, died in the egg).

    Are they cute, or what? [​IMG]

    I think my husband is holding about 7 of them. They are very tiny! [​IMG]

    Looks like it, I think I would be afraid I would break it! Im setting some khaki campbell duck eggs some time next week, after they and the incubator get here lol. I think the bator will be here today or tommarow and the eggs come on the 23rd through the 29th so sometime next week I cant wait! Then on the 29th I have 6 ducklings comeing! What have I gotten myself into? All I know is that im going to be a very busy mamma duck. Hope things go well your way! Good luck with the chickies!
