When exactly is lockdown for coturnix quail?
Last 4 days,2 days or what?
well.. it's 17 to 18 days for incubation.. and you stop turning day 15
So lockdown begins at day 15?
Day 14 or 15.
Quote:close enough.. when you stop turning is when lockdown begins.. in all honesty if you are off by a day or two it really doesn't make THAT much difference.. I have seen some people with auto turners who forgot to turn them off and had chicks hatch out while the eggs were still being turned.. granted that's not the ideal situation.. but it has happened
So pretty much just stop turning on day 15 and go right into lockdown
