    No need in giving up!!!!!! My very first try.......I lost 120 Georgia Giant Bobwhite eggs 3/4 of the way through the hatch due to a very extensive power outage with a cold front behind it to boot back in early spring, and I had no way of keeping them warm. Since then, I've had more success than I know what to do with all summer long. I've got Bobs runnin' out my ears ........ and headin' to the freezer [​IMG] Don't be a quitter now [​IMG]

    Well, you have eggs coming. So now is the time to prepare.

    Get them hatched, let them grow a bit. Then play with them a bit. Then tell us what you think.

    Good luck on your next hatch.

    Don't give up. Out of my first 90 eggs I got 4 quail to hatch. There are a lot of things that can go wrong but it is so worth seeing those babys pop out of the shells. They are so relaxing to sit and watch them.
