    On occasion, we have new members who need assistance with incubating. Here are 2 good sources for members to go through. As always, most sources are geared toward hatching chickens, but there are incubation charts in each link that list quail; for some reason, Button quail are absent from each chart.

    This link has some great information, including a very detailed checklist and what appears to be a “4-H” info sheet for chickens from the University of Illinois Extension.

    This link was made by a member here at BYC.

    I'm still waiting for "an affordable" book to be written for the new Quail owner.
