    I always move my eggs from the incubator to the hatcher a couple of days before the due date, or so I thought. I had forgotten to write down a batch of 64 Coturnix eggs on the calendar. My wife contacted me yesterday while I was at work to let me know the kids heard baby birds in the incubator. I told her to get all the babies and the eggs from the batch that were hatching and move them to the hatcher and lightly mist with warm water. When I got home we had 57 babies. That was a nice surprise! [​IMG]

    I bet it was! Didn't even have to go through the "watch them forever while they hatch" phase.
