    I believe that I am not supposed to hatch Quail sad
    After my 1 of 14 Coturnix hatch I was hoping for better luck with the next batch of 29 eggs. I put these 29 eggs in a Brand New incubator and hoped for the best. Well, day 18 and nothing, except two eggs look like they have some "yolk" popping out of the egg. I opened a few and they looked like they had started to form chicks

    I have 36 eggs in the borrowed incubator that "should" hatch on Dec 14th. With my experience with my first two trys I have almost given up hope.

    WHAT AM I DOING WRONG??????????????

    After my error on leaving the door open to the Quail cage I have only one Female Quail left. I was getting an egg a day til the last few days and now nothing.
    I guess that is good as it is hard to collect eggs at one a day and try to hatch any.

    Were my eggs just not any good?

    Do I need to order eggs via the mail??? I want to raise Quail but it seems I am unable to hatch.
