We cannot guarantee hatchability on eggs; the percentage of your hatches will depend upon the settings on your incubator and care provided during maturation.
Jumbo Bobwhite Quail eggs should be kept at 99.5 F under forced air (101.5 in radiant heat) and a wet bulb of 86 F in an incubator. Eggs should be placed small end down and turned 90 degrees three times a day. On the 21st day the eggs should be placed on their sides in the hatcher. The hatcher should be set at 99 F with a web bulb of 87 F.
Around the 23rd day the eggs should hatch. If eggs are to be held any length of time before they are set, they should be kept small end down, turned three times daily and at a temperature between 60-68 F.
Once hatched chicks should be kept at 90 F for the first week and drop the temperature 5 degrees per week. Feed a good starter 28-30% protein.
The eggs should be turned 90 degrees at least 3 times per day to prevent the embryonic membranes from sticking to the shell. Always be sure hands are free of dirt and grease when handling eggs. Stop turning the eggs 3 days before the eggs are to hatch, for partridge that is on day 20.
