Put 36 eggs in the incubator today.  Wink

Hope the best for all of them. Seems to be a very successful project so far.

I've bee extremely pleased with how this is working out.  I'd recommend it to anyone and I'll be more than happy to add my two cents as to what we've been doing.  Nice having eggs everyday to collect.

Added another cage of 12 hens and 2 roosters.  This ups my total to 28 hens and 6 roosters.  I'm going to try this cage as an open concept.  Rather than dividing a 4x2 cage into two halves, this is an open 4x2.  We'll see how well it works outs.  

This leaves me four quail to process out of the last hatch.  I put the 36 in the incubator on lock down this morning.  We'll see what the hatch rate is, probably late in the weekend or early next week.

I've had 22 of the 36 hatch so far.  Don't know if any more will hatch but I'll give it probably until tomorrow.  Two didn't make it and died shortly after the hatch so I've got 20 chicks in the brooder.

Why quail and not chickens or grouse or something else?

My county will allow chickens but the HOA won't unless I petition a majority of the home owners to ratify an amendment.

and Quail aren't mentioned in the HOA so they are good to go?

From my understanding yes, they're considered game birds and not poultry.  Haven't had any issues with them.
