    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Depends on what breed you are hatching...Bobwhites are 23 to 24 days....Coturnix are 17-18 days....Buttons are 16 days...Valley and Blue Scale are 22 to 23 days....Gambels are 21 to 22 days....ect..

    Remember these dates are not set in stone. Chicks can hatch 4 or even 5 days later if the temp was a bit low during the incubation cycle or some genetic issue. I have even had chicks hatch earlier than these dates as well.

    You can also stop by our quail section for more help as well....https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/48/quail

    Good luck with the hatch and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about quail (never had any), but I they are certainly cute little birds. Definitely post on our quail link that TwoCrows has left with you, and take advantage of our quail experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your quail.

    Yes they can but make sure it is quail medicated feed and not chicken chick medicated feed. :)
