    Had a little experiment going... everybody always talks about turning the eggs so many times a day for so many days... and yada yada yada!!!
    well I had two eggs that I put in during my quail incubation, I put them in the tenth of Oct. and today they hatched!!! [​IMG] the part of it that was the experiment was that I only turned them 3 times and the temp varied frome 95-97 with humidity ranging from 20-44 and pretty much set them and forgot them... till I heard them peeping just before 6pm today and when I got back at 9pm they had both hatched!!! ONLY 20 days!!! the only bad part was that one of the eggs was supposed to be a NN and from what I saw it did not inherit that gene... oh well... I guess I am still happy for the hatch!!!
