    I was wondering if I could put quail eggs in with my chicken eggs is it safe. I was also wondering if I could put some guinea fowl eggs in the incubator with chicken eggs I know it takes longer for guinea eggs to hatch but next time I would make It so they would hatch about the same time. I just want every ones opinion I want to be safe not sorry since I have project leghorns , what ever chicken lays the second darkest egg my friend gave me those eggs and some white jersey giants.

    Ok I hope It turns out good. I have raised them together though and they did fine.

    I also have some quail eggs under two different broody hens I've hatched some out like that but quail chicks are very different than chicks they do their own thing don't pay attention to the hen at all
