    My wife brought home 2 button quail eggs from her shop that she wanted to see if we could hatch. I had already moved all of my Chicken eggs into my LG, so I took my r-com mini that wouldn't turn apart to see what was up. I see now why they send those little clear inserts with them!! to bad the previous owner didn't follow the directions! I cleaned all of the hardened egg goo out and lo and behold it turns great now. It will hold 7 quail eggs so I went out to our aviary and picked up the 3 freshest looking Bobwhite eggs and the two freshest looking (and smelling) coturnix eggs and filled it up. The readout on the R-com says 17 days, can I move these eggs to my "hatcher" when the time comes? and if so when should I move them?

    Quote:Make sure it is only 17 days, I thought the same thing and locked down on day 14. Turns out were supposed to be in bator for 23 days I did get 9, but 5 others did not make it.
    Good Luck Michele
