    Looking for someone who could send me a few button quail eggs to hatch. I work for a daycare and one of my lessons with the kids is on eggs. The other teachers wanted to hatch ducklings but I explained to them that it would be unwise since we cannot keep ducks in our center and the kids are going to get really attached to these birds that they help hatch. So after some research we got permission to keep some button quail in a small aviary type set up in a nice little area that the kids can sit near and throw food for them. I am working with a LG 9300 purchased from Tractor Supply. The eggs will be manually turned. I rigged up a computer fan to help circulate the air but I could use some advice on where to place it in the incubator. It looks like a lot of people have it mounted to the top of the incubator but I am having trouble figuring out how to do that. Thanks a million everyone! This is by far my favorite message forum for many years despite never living on a farm yet.
