  5. Thanks you guys for stopping by my blog! I absolutely love the photo of the farmhouse. I wish we had the money to purchase such a gorgeous house, but around here they cost a fortune if you want to purchase one with property.

    I love watching baby birds in the incubator. So fun.

    Keep in touch!

  7. 2.5

    One died after pipping. 2 are out of the shell and 1 has it's shell open but won't come out. Something seems wrong. The humidity is 70-75 yet the membranes on the shells are really dry and the quail seem to having issues zipping themselves out.

  8. 6 are out here,two appear to be stuck,one did zipper but that's it and the other one just got a few pieces of the shell off.......I think that dries them out.....and my incubator is forced air.My humidity is the same as yours......so I have 40 eggs doing nothing that I can see.Something isn't right,is it.....but for the life of me I can't figure it out.There should be pips all over the place!LOL
    I only candled a couple eggs this time,so there may be some duds but not that many. I'm not doing any more for awhile,this is too hard on my head!.Bator Brain,that's me! LOL
    I hope you get some more quail over the next couple days.Hang in there:)
