    I have fifteen total, and they are all doing wonderfully. Very active, bright-eyed, and bushy-tailed.[​IMG] Have cleaned my incubator and disinfected. Cranking it up now for a load of quail eggs....Wish me luck:fl[​IMG]

    Well, it was my first time using an incubator, so I used eggs off my mixed flock. My rooster is a Columbian Wyandotte, the hens are Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Brown Leghorns, and 2 easter-eggers. The eggs that hatched were all brown eggs, cept one white egg(the brown leghorn). I just can't wait to see what they turn out like.

    I'm sure glad to hear that about quail eggs being easier.....I have been so nervous about trying to hatch them. I was so scared that I did the chicken eggs first as a trial run so to speak.[​IMG]
