Today is day 16 for Sam's quail eggs he sent me. I started with 50. Out of curiosity I left 25 in the cartons Sam sent me and put 25 in the regular egg tray. I'm using a Brinsea Octagon 40 at 101.4 degrees air temp and 99.4 degrees wiggler temp. Humidity started arounf 40 and I raised it into the 60's for the last hatch. Here is the start pic: Here is where I'm at now at day 16 (give or take 12 hours): Notice the missing eggs? Maybe cause they are here: So why??? 22 out of 25 eggs that were in the egg carton and upright hatched while none of the 25 laying on their sides hatched. Surprise!! In the last 30 minutes 3 of the 25 on the right have hatched. What is going on here? Is this a case study? Why did the eggs placed upright in a cardboard tray hatch quicker and with such an amazing rate????? Cmon you scientists and biologists... Give me some answers.
