    by all means you can leave the chicks in there it helps regulate humidity better if you do. I get impacient and normally take themout though [​IMG] congrats! buttons, coturnix or bobwhites orr?

    sounds good and i bet you also will get tibetans, if you're getting tux you'll more than likely get some solid tibetans too. You'll love the tuxes and the goldens the most i bet. [​IMG]

    hey woke up this morning and found 50 of the 100 quail eggs hatched so far 5 more are drying so what is a good percentage for a quail hatch of 100 eggs?

    Well if the eggs were shipped a 50% hatch is by all means a semi-good one.

    Leave the chicks inside intil hatch is complete, and best of luck with your hatch!
