We cannot guarantee hatchability on hatching eggs, however the percentage of your hatches will depend upon the settings on your incubator and care provided during maturation.
The temperature for bobwhite quail is 99.5°F for forced air incubators and 102°F for still-air incubators. The humidity for bobwhite quail should be about 60% (86° wet bulb) for the first 20 days of incubation. On the last three days the humidity should be raised to about 75% (92° wet bulb). If the humidity is too low the eggs will dry out and the embryos will die. If the humidity is too low for the last three days, when the chicks try to hatch they will get stuck in their shells.
The eggs should be turned at least 3 times per day to prevent the embryonic membranes from sticking to the shell. Stop turning the eggs 3 days before the eggs are to hatch, for bobwhites that is on day 21.
For all Northern Bobwhite Quail hatching egg orders, we will include an extra 4% overage of the quantity ordered. If by chance you receive eggs broken through the mail, please contact us immediately. We will work with you to make your order right.
