    I always heard that when you incubate quail, they will all begin to hatch at once... 1 hour ago I had a few pipped eggs that I thought were duds. Now I have 5 chicks crawling around the incubator and another one or two at least zipping! [​IMG]

    Yep. An hour after the first hatch, I had 8 little bobwhites crawling around. Sadly, one started failing almost immediately and it finally passed [​IMG] ...one more egg to go...it's alive, but no progress yet... we shall see! [​IMG]
