    the way it operates... i had many other words i was going to use, but thought better of it. [​IMG] i didn't even think that stink could mean something bad. sorry, no, it is all good soo far.

    Quote:noo no you stopped turning at the right day![​IMG] i'm just saying now wait until they hatch [​IMG] *meaning try not to touch the incy until they hatch this is when people start getting anxious hehe---i know i do!* LOL! Ofcourse as long as your temp and humidity stay good that is [​IMG]

    are when my quail eggs are 14 days incubated [​IMG]
