    Hi all,

    I'm new to hatching quail and have read all the posts on temp for incubation. My question is quail like hatching poultry on the last days before hatching you drop the temp and this helps up the humidity. All I seam to see is the temp of 99.5 to 100.2 for the start of incubation and no mention about when to lower and to what temp.
    I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year

    you keep the temp at 100 just increase the amount of air in the incubator, open another vent, and raise the humidity. plus do not turn the eggs at this time.

    Yes you drop or the high heat will do damage to 95 F and remove
    the egg's from the turner and let them settle for the last several
    days and get the brooder ready at 95 F with water and chick
    starter and try a little sugar in the water to help them get going[​IMG]
