Well out of my 24 eggs only one hatched. I think I know what happened, as at one point I thought my eggs had gotten too cold in storage and that is why there is such a low hatch rate, but now I am wondering what else to do. I have the 1 quail in the brooder box now with mashed up food and a quail waterer and I will be keeping it inside for the time being. This is my first quail that I hatched and I am so happy with it. At the same time I feel bad because it has literally no one except me and my boyfriend and we can't be around it 100% of the time. So what do I need to do? I don't have any tiny stuffed animals for it to cuddle up with, if that would be psychologically necessary for it I'll go find one, but is it? After being in the incubator for 24 hours, I've talked to it a little and when I finally got it out of there I talked to it on the way to the brooder box. Is this how you get them to imprint on you? I don't want to over-handle it so how much should I mess with it, minimum and maximum? I keep my house at 74 degrees, so unless that's an okay temperature for it to be in I don't want it to spend too much time out of the brooder box and away from the heat lamp. Will it follow me around when it gets older and can handle the temperature? Literally any and all information is valuable to me. I've never had quail before now.
