    Hi I'm new to raising quail, and of course I have a few questions! My incubator is broken and it can only maintain a 92° temp, is this okay? Also what is the absolute longest time the eggs can go without hatching? What is the lowest humidity the quail eggs can endure the first 17 days? Thank you and have a nice day!;

    hmmm have you tried putting a blanket or towel over the incubator to keep it warmer?
    and what type of quail? do you candle your eggs?

    I have had cots hatch as late as 21st day so don't rush them (unless they have piped or zipped then keep an eye on them)
    I'm not sure if 92 will work.....
