    Hello! I am planning to hatch some quails. I live in Singapore, so fertile quail eggs are hard to come by. Does anyone know where I can get some?

    On the same topic, is it really possible to hatch quail eggs from the supermarket? I have seen quite a few success stories, mainly A Chick Called Albert () and Fish and Chicks (). I heard that this is because it is harder to identify male quails from female quails, so they get mixed up and fertile eggs end up being produced.

    Thanks!

    If that is your only source of eggs, it's worth a try.

    A chick called albert is a great channel, I watch him a lot. I would go for it.

    Yeah... It's my only source of eggs sadly. Google isn't helpful too. :barnie

    Yep, ACCA has great videos, I love them! :wee

    I think I'm going to try incubating supermarket quail eggs when I am free. Even if they don't work out, it will still be a fun experience!
    Thanks for the help guys! :)
