    Hey guys i am on day 22 with my bobwhite quail eggs....I have a GQF sportsman with 100 quail eggs in there. I came home from work this morning to find the temperature dropped to 70 degrees! [​IMG] I was able to fix the problem and get it back up but the eggs may have been in 70 degrees for up to 20 hours at most due to my work schedule. Any advice or similiar stories that turned out to still be successful?

    We had a bad storm and the eggs were actually blown outside of the coop. They were ice cold when I found them, threw them in the bator and they hatched just fine.
