    my friend wants me to incubate her eggs for her from some polish hens but i only do quail so i was wondering if some one could give me the specs (incubation time, temp, humidity, lockdown days, ect.) any info would be great.

    Incubation is 21 days, lockdown on day 18. Humidity you will get different answer, but we do around 40% days 1-18 and 60-70% on days 19-21. We just had a hatch of 19 out of 21 with these numbers. Temperature needs to be between 99.5 and 100.5 for forced air, not sure what still air temps are.



    Good luck!!
