I'm new go quail ,will be starting to build my coop in a few days . Plan on a&m quail . What kind of incubator do y'all recommend ? I'm going with 4 females 1 male to start with . And migjt move up to 8 females 2 males
Right now I have a little giant still air . I'm on a pretty small budget for an incubator . I just found a forced air at tsc for 129 but would still need quail egg racks . Heck I can do 5 to 1 also . I plan to build separate pens like my rabbit hutch . Where are you at ? I still haven't found my quail yet
I have a little giant also one of my first one. You might think about adding a small computer fan in the top of it to make it forced air it will make a lot of difference in controlling the temp. You can get a 12vdc one off of ebay for a couple bucks. You could get the quail racks for it or just roll them around 4 or 5 times a day. I've since built me a real nice one out of a wine cooler, actually have two of them now can do 320 eggs at a time in the big one. When I started I had my quail in a rabbit hutch but now have all wire cages where the eggs roll out the front. I'm located in fort worth, If your ever in the area stop by. If I can help with any thing else let me know
Thanks . I think I have a pc fan laying around here somewhere . Any chance you can send me a pic of your set up ?
