    you need to turn them at least once in the am and once in the pm every day EXCEPT the last 5 days of which you do not turn them at all. Same as chicken eggs. Be sure there is plenty of water in the incubator, every time I have done this the humidity seems a little to low and some chicks get stuck in the eggs and need some extra help getting out. Good Luck

    @richard – out of interest, how do you keep your quail – in a cage? Can you post a video of your set up? Thx, Ivan

    We had a broody Polish Greenleg cross but the eggs basically went rancid – she was on them for about a month! We have had very little luck with any hatched chicks – have an incubator (Russian brand) and will prob. use it next Spring. Quail eggs might be a good idea but will need to get them fresh.

    I have the same incubator, never hatched quail bt its always been helpful with chickens to keep a sma dish of water in there to keep the humidity up.

    doing is the best way to learn… that’s how i did… you can hear stuff till the cows come home, but if you have not done it… well, i don’t have to tell you the difference… :-)

    not a chance, I do this (these vids) because I am learning so all the advice I get is very valuable to me. I put them out there because I want the feedback as to how you all think my self taught meathods are and if there is something I’m doing that is crazy stupid I want to hear it. Thanks again and I always look forward to your suggestions.

    I have 2 buff orpington hens that are like that but they dont go broody on demand, so this will be a nice addition to my tools. I had some bantams for a while but they did’nt winter well for me.

    maybe the vid was processing try it again. I think I will eat some, sell some and , keep some as layers. I have been quail and pheasant hunting before and this should be a whole lot easier, lol

    I can’t load the video for some reason, but are you gonna eat the quails or produce eggs?

    very cool… fyi a cochin bantam hen is the best incubator going… they’ll try to hatch a rock… and great moms and will sit on a remarkably large quantity of eggs… not sure they will do a quail, but you might want to check them out… glad you are back…
