Today is day #14, so I’ve removed the eggs from the rotator

Eggs in incubator

…and placed them on the mesh floor of the incubator.

Phase 2 for the quail eggs!

For the next 3 – 4 days the little chicks inside will move themselves into their hatching position. The temperature will stay at 100 degrees and the humidity at 60%.

It’s possible that the hatch may take a little longer because I had a hard time keeping the temp up high enough, but the humidity stayed up, so I’m still hopeful.

I’ve got the brooder all set up, which I hope to be using on Friday of this week.

Hopefully my next post will include some hatchlings!!
