    I am hatching Japanese quail, button and coturnix. Yesterday was day 13 so last night I transferred the eggs from the recirculated egg turning incubator to a still air incubator. When I went to ed the temp was 100, when I got up it was 103. I quickly opened incubator to let out heat and adjusted. I had the still air set up and running for a couple days and adjusted to 101 but moved it to another room last night, my bad judgement.

    Anyways, will I loose all these quail?

    Your eggs may very well be fine. High temperatures don't always kill eggs. Hopefully, it wasn't at 103 degrees for very long. I'd candle them in a few days and see if any are alive.
