    I just had my (what was meant to be 12) quail eggs delivered today to fit in my beginners little 'bator - opened the box and there is about 30 [​IMG] I can't incubate all these little fellas, I will only fit about 12 in the 'bator

    That's awesome! That's a great seller to me. Do you have any friends that incubate that would hatch the rest of them? Or maybe buy another incubator that's cheap just to at least give the other eggs a chance?

    Just spread them out and make sure they aren't stuck under the heating element-rotate them around until candling day-ALOT of us do it with great success!!!!

    The same thing happened to me expect I have the room. I won an action go 8 Mottled Duccles and got 24. Wasn't expecting that many but it is great. I had to buy my second incubator, after winning 3 other auctions. To top it off my porcelain duccle just started laying also. Luckily for me I also have 2 broody hens.
