    I saw my first quail egg yesterday. I never realized how TINY they are!!! It was next to a business card and the card dwarfed the egg. I can't imagine a bird that will grow big enough for people to eat hatches out of that!

    Yes it is. I found almost all of the materials for this incubator in my barn, which was crammed with stuff when we bought the place. The parts I purchased were the thermostat and timer. I rewired things and insulated the best I could. I scalped a turner out of a microwave that was in the barn without a door or cord. I don't know why it was there, but the turner works and was free. I haven't actually hatched in it, but I built it during my last hatch which was all trouble so chicks went in as a brooder for a bit.

    After I disinfected I started a serious build. I like the concept of a bator that transitions to brooder easily.

    Oh geeze! I meant to add a pic with my last post. Here's my quail waterer in case it helps someone.

    I got mine from an independent feed store in the city. I didn't know they were quail waterers...lol. I've never seen anymore like this since. I really like mine and they're easier to move around without spilling.
