I am looking to get quail started early next year and I've got a pretty good understanding on what I want to do. I will be doing quail mainly for meat, but eggs and pets too. 1) I have heard mixing breeds can be disastrous and this is probably a silly question but is it okay to raise jumbo A&M white coturnix with jumbo pharaoh coturnix? Any down side to this? 2) How have hatch rates and success on jumbo coturnix quail been for you? I just bought a genesis 1588 and quail rails. It's pretty straight forward and all I have to do is put a little water in the reservoir and plug it in. I have never hatched eggs before and this was marketed as a simple incubator that was great for first timers. I was looking at a website that sells in groups of 12, 18, 24 and 50. I was thinking of getting 24 jumbo white and 24 jumbo brown... is it inevitable that some won't hatch? If I wanted 45-50 quail do you think I should order some extras? Thanks.
