Hi, i just want to avoid to scenario as i know it's not funny nor wholesome nor something to look forward to. i remembered it happened to me many many many moons ago when i was a small kid. i have 59 quails eggs in my DIY styrofoam incubator, in a lockdown state. doing this for the first time. i did not candle. eggs were shipped. i don't expect to hv flying marks as far as hatching rate is concerned, and if i end up with a few live babies, i'll be overjoyed.
