I'm feeling so down and frustrated. I REALLY wanted to raise quail. I thought about it forever, made plans for beautiful pens, couldn't wait to have some for the dinner table. But I apparently cannot hatch quail for anything. My first batch was 45 eggs, I hatched five healthy quail, who are my special pets and are producing eggs right now. I know what went wrong that time, my thermometer was off. Not to mention I heard bad things about hatching quail in a LG. Okay, try number two! First, half the 50 eggs came broken courtesy of USPS. So I put the rest in my new old metal Brower and hand turned them. I got six I believe, five of which have made it being feathered out and getting big. The seller of the second set sent me some more to make up for the broken eggs, and were due to hatch a couple days ago. And I've got one tiny lonely quail. I don't know if I have the heart to try again. I see threads about how hardy quail are, and how many people get to hatch and I just feel like such a failure. Sorry for the whine fest.
