The instructions for my incubator says 100 degrees fahrenheit for most eggs.  The temperature is measured at egg level, not top of incubator.

hi i have something extra to add, you must be carefull of the humidity, at all time, the quail eggs are verry sesitive to dry enviroment. y use my incubator at 100, but if yours is a small one without a fan, you can use a higer temp no more than 102, if it have a fan you can begin with 99.5, or 100. if they are bob white they hatch in 23 to 25 days, if they are japanese they hatch in 18 to 20 days, 3 days prior to hatch you have to stop turning the eggs and increse humiditi, you can lower the temp by .5 to increese it or and add a biger water container, if you buy a gqf incubator it came whith extra space for that.
wish you luk with your proyect.
