My Goodness this thread is BUSY! I will post and then go back to read and catch up! My chick began hatching thru the night. Out of 16 set, 9 went into lockdown and only 6 hatched. One was dead in shell and two were quitters. The Delaware Bantam chick is behind the digital monitor. Only 16 quail eggs made it to the hatcher. They should begin hatching tomorrow. Instead of sponges, I use little containers with rolled up papertowels. I can keep them wet by using a syringe to squirt water thru little holes in the top. Here they are moved into the brooder with some week old chicks and a 2 week old Bantam.
