Hatching due on Sunday
The next batch of quail eggs is due to hatch on Sunday. Today is the last day I will turn the eggs. There are 24 in the incubator and as soon as they hatch, we will be putting into it some duck eggs. The 6 quail that hatched last month are doing well and this weekend they will be moved into the larger brooder box which currently houses the two exchequer leghorn chicks that hatched in January. They in turn will be moved temporarily into the hutch we bought as a quail house recently. So we have a bit of a chick conveyor belt!
