    I don't mean to be a pain but i have a quesiton, so my bobwhites are do to hatched this coming week, and well what happens if they hatch while i'm at work and are in the incubator, will it effect them too be in there for a time? Someone said to leave them in there just till they dry? And I've also read they are cold sensitive, so how long till they really 'feather' out? Thanks!! We are just counting the days [​IMG]

    They will be fine in the incubator till you come home from work.
    Just make sure you have a proper brooder warmed up when you are ready to take em out.

    Be thankful you wont be home at hatch time, it really eases YOUR stress level and cuts down on repeated questions here [​IMG]

    Good Luck!
