    Okay, I'm a first time incubator, and I (stupid, I know) have 30 quail eggs due the 18th, and 12 chicken eggs due the 21. My bator has an autoturner, so how do I go about separating the hatches. Do I just set up the brooder for the quail, and put the eggs in there prior to hatching, or do I turn off the autoturner, let them hatch in the bator, and then move them?

    I have read about people having a hatcher-don't know really what that is.

    Can someone help me out?

    Thanks!!!!

    (I apologize if this has been asked before-I have very little time to be on the puter to do a thorough search)
