That fascinating about delayed puberty Marigold. Atm (some 20 odd days after summer solstice) we are getting 15 hrs of light. At this time of year the further south the longer the day, im about 70kms south of Hobart, Tasmania. Today is going to be 31c, tonight will drop to 16c. Doesn't get much warm...

Re: First time raising quails

Hi again, after a slow introduction to the outside world the new addition 'Tiddalik' has settled into her/his new home. Im guessing she is a girl by the accepting behaviour of the male. At first i would introduce in the afternoon as the mating behaviour seemed less vigorous than the morning. A few w...

Re: First time raising quails

Hi, sadly 1 of the little chaps didnt make it. Wasnt right from the start and was never able to stand erect, straighten at the knees if you like. So after 3 days he/she died. The other hatchling is full of beans and going well but alas is alone. We've tried bringing a mature quail into the brooder f...

Re: First time raising quails

We have 2 little fluff balls and unfortunately 1 other was unable to make it out of the shell. The 2 surviving recieved some help, the membrane is very tough. (Noticed that when cooking with them too.) Is that common? Should I be waiting 24hrs before transferring? I'm not sure if they've eaten. Is t...

Re: First time raising quails

Hi again, i fear the humidity may be too high after all. Tomorrow is day 17 so we should find out soon. I swear i see some eggs wobbling about? Your right Marigold about the ecoglow being not warm enough. Ive put it in a propagation tent with a heater on a thermostat. At about 24c in the tent it is ...

Re: First time raising quails

Hi Marigold, sorry for the slow reply. I somehow deleted my last reply. I think I have King quail as the eggs are certainly of an eating size. 20181119_200936_resized(2).jpg I have maintained the incubator reservoir filling half up. With 2 days to go i intend to run it with both sides full. Is this ...
