Ok guys, when I hatch birds for whatever reason I "Dont count my chickens before they hatch." For one, for any beginner or even novice, candling Coturnix eggs is difficult. Even us folks with a little experience can screw that up. I have three batches of eggs in my Sportsman 1502 now. 13 Ameracauna, and two batches of 10 Coturnix eggs about a week apart. Occasionally I may candle to show guests, or the kids, or to see if things are going well, I may even take a rare random sample. Never had an issue when I didn't candle. Hatch rate is the same, never had an egg stink really bad, or explode. I see a lot of questions from newbies about it. Can someone tell me what the emphasis is?
