Colorado Button Quail Chicks

Colorado Button Quail Babies Hatch…

The Colorado eggs hatched 1/24/15 and 1/25/15. I ended up with 16 chicks out of 26 eggs; about a 64% hatch rate which is quite good for shipped eggs…

I did my shipped egg procedure again so that the eggs could settle:

  • Let the eggs sit overnight at room temperature
  • Placed them in the incubator in the morning inside the autoturner but DID NOT turn it on for the first 3 days.
  • 3rd day, turned it on, stopped turning between 13-14 day and  on day 16/17/18 I have babies 🙂
