    I hope I'm posting in the right place!

    I am incubating valley and blue scale quail. Same size egg as bobwhite. I had the TX-7 set up for 48% humidity, 99.5 temp. But, then I read somewhere (or dreamed it!) that himidity should be LOWER.

    Is this correct?

    Thanks!

    My chart says for Valley Quail:
    22-23 days @99.5°F
    Humidity 57-63% first 18 days
    68-80% the last 3 days

    Same for Blue Scaled Quail (23 days)
