    I had 11 quail hatch, I left them in the bator to dry and get strong, 24 hrs later, I still have some hatch, so I followed some advice, put a quail waterer in the bator and now this am they are all wet.
    I removed the waterer, removed the water shot glass for humidity, so there is no more water in there.
    How do I get them dry? will they dry on their own?
    Last time I hatched quail I think I put them in an extra bator with a water dish.
    temp is 99
    I feel so badly
    email me and tell me what to do, or post here.

    Just keep them in the incubator, they dry off just fine with no ill effects.
