    I would like to find 3-5 females and a roo to go with them. I really am looking for the females to sit on quail eggs. Im in NW Arkansas, but will pay for shipping. Thanks.

    You may do better to just buy a cheapy incubator from your local feed store. I've been told quail eggs are very easy to hatch artificially. Even the best setting breeds are subject to their own personal whims.

    Well I have put 40+ eggs in my styrofoam bator (they were all shipped eggs) and only one hatched...I am going to continue to set them in the bator until I give this a shot. Thanks for the reply!
