Well they are finally here, my dad said to be sure and let you guys know.

First i want to thank you all for the information and let you know this is a great site.

Now I'm gonna tell you how i did it.

1st my dad let me buy a incubator and hatcher from this man in nacogdoches Texas, then after we set them up i joined this forum, the next step was to read and read and read because all the info you need is right here, unless your a MALL COP, then we got 42 Pharaoh quail eggs from a friend, and bought some on line.

i cleaned my incubator and hatcher them turned them on, set my incubator temp at 99.5- 100.0 and adjusted my humidity to 54-56%, warmed my eggs up to room temp about 85 then placed them in the incubator, 10 days later we candled them with a LED mag-lite and threw out 8 that were not fertile.

on day 15 we turned on the hatcher and got it adjusted temp 99.3 and humidity 66%, then two days later BAM just like clock work chicks 18 of them, then everything slowed down, after they dried we moved them to the brooder (temp 99.0 degrees), I could see where the ones still in the hatcher had pipped but no action, my dad turned up the humidity to 68-69% and lowed the temp to 98.5 6 hours later 9 more hatched after they dried we moved them to the brooder.

That left 7 unhatched the next morning we had 2 more that were OK, then we helped 3 more my dad said it was like they were just to lazy to peck out, the 2 we helped were crippled, so my dad said with every thing there is obligation he told me if i was gonna be a quail raiser that sometimes i had to do the ugly stuff to SO BAM no more crippled chicks and i threw the others out that hadn't hatched, but he said 29 out of 34 was not bad.

thanks everybody and with your help I'm on my way to becoming a eggs-spert, hopefully this post will help some other kid just like me.

Thanks
Casey        j41

PS. my dad helped me write this cause i couldn't keep count of all my chicks

gboston1970,

That's absolutely wonderful. The smile on your son's face is priceless.
I would hope that you have taken that picture and had it enlarge,
framed and hanging in a viewable area in your home.

That is a picture to be proud of  s98

gboston1970,

We haven't heard anything since the 7th of Jan, and it is now the 23rd of Jan.

16 days have lapse since then, did the hatch survive?
