I have a brand new gqf 1502 and have spent over $1000 on ebay eggs. I have a few chicks but for most part they go in trash. The quail eggs seam to do way better than pheasant! 3/4 of eggs develop but die in shell. If guidelines are correct they are usually late and very weak. The incubator reads 100.1 and gqf says not to adjust. I have an expensive lab grade certified thermometer and a incubator warehouse thermometer that read within half degree. Humidity around 45-50. I move them to gqf genisis with humidikit that keeps it at 65 percent. I have raised birds in past and hatched my own years ago so not entirely inept or newby. What in the hell is going on? I am really sure I am within more than except able parameters.I have the urge to raise 1/2 degee and try to hatch in bottom of 1502. Seems like lockdown is problem. I have raised golden and amherst years ago and they have been almost impossible this year with shipped eggs. I have hatched some bobwhites and even mountain quail but bigger eggs not doing well. I have like 30 mountain quail eggs in bator now! Am I just expecting too much from ebay eggs since I dont know health, genetics, age of breeders and how old eggs are before shipping? You would think if you had 80 percent developing I would have chicks everywhere? Couple thousand poorer and very disgusted. I should have just bought pair in fall. I did that in past when gbwf forum was going and raised lots of babys.
