Went out to the quail pen and was greated by an egg. This would have been the 14th from last night. They all lay afternoon and evenig. So adding the light is what they needed. I added the light a few days ago for 14 hours of light. Today is day 15 and I meant to lockdown first thing this morning, but forgot and was making some Dill Pickled Eggs when neighbor called and asked me about lockdown. Went over to check the bator and saw a chick just hatched. So, I took out the turner, put it back and hurried up to get the racks off and back in the bator. Then I looked and finally figured out it was from one of the 10 eggs I put in. (I marked 10 of my own eggs with an X). Its from my own eggs (smaller cause they were only laying for a week when I set this hatch). So, hope it makes it, cause its a Manchurian Gold. Hoping for a male. Its a good size for a baby quail. Oh for the person that forgot to mark the set date on the calendar. Last night the humidity dropped to 30 of a sudden and the temp tried to rise. So watch for that and I would say stop turning within 8 - 12 hours. Off to get the Brooder tubs ready. Edited to Update: All doing well, I turned temp down but they are ready except for 2 that are gone. So far: My Eggs 3 M Gold, 4 Jumbo Brown, Breeder eggs 6 M Gold, 63 Jumbo Browns. 76 Total of 115 eggs set. 17 infertile, 9 golds and 13 J browns dead in egg at various stages. 85% Fertility Rate. 78% Viable Hatch Rate.
