    I built a bator and have been struggling with humidity in it, it kept staying impossibly low. So I broke down and ordered one. I will have some coturnix eggs that will need to be started this weekend and I want to make sure they have the best chance at coming into this world.

    So I got a Hova-Bator with the quail egg rails and turner. I am very excited and cannot wait to post pictures!!!!

    LOL, well I plan on just selling the eggs and only hatching what I need for replacements and hobby. My DH refuses to even look at the pictures of the Quail because he knows they are food and just cannot stand the thought of getting to even know them. I explained that several are going to be layers and are staying around, but he refuses just the same. He says he cannot take the chance of falling for the wrong bird and then me serving it up on a plate.

    Oh well, C'est la vie. At least we eat.
