Tips for maximum hatching results of quail eggs.
Store your quail eggs with the large end UP in clean egg flats in your egg room or cooler. Maintain the egg storage room at 55°-70°F and about 70-80% relative humidity.
Egg storage beyond seven days after delivery may reduce hatchability, so make a note of the delivery date. Pre-warming hatching eggs for several hours prior to setting has become more popular, but is up to the individual. When eggs are pre-warmed, they are removed from the cool room and allowed to gradually warm to room temperature. Gradually warming the eggs reduces the condensation of water on the eggshell surface. Water left on the shell enables bacteria on the egg surface to multiply and for motile bacteria to penetrate the eggshell. The pre-warming environment must have a strong airflow so that condensation moisture evaporates as it is formed.
For successful incubation
Ensure the following: temperature, humidity, egg turning, ventilation and sanitation.
- Temperature, humidity and turning are the three most critical factors with hatching eggs.
- Bobwhite quail eggs will hatch 23-24 days from the time they are set in the incubator.
- The ideal temperature in a forced-air incubator should be 99.5°F with a relative humidity at approximately 60%.
Temperature fluctuations may shorten or prolong the exact length of incubation by a few days. On day 21 of incubation the eggs are generally transferred to a separate hatcher. Using separate setters and hatchers results in cleaner chicks and less cross contamination between newly set eggs.
The relative humidity in the hatching machine should be a little higher, 70-75%, with a slightly lower temperature of 97-99°F, however, the ideal temperature may vary due to the different types of incubators and hatching room conditions. To check for best results try and avoid hot and cool spots in the incubator by placing several accurate thermometers in the incubator and check them several times daily. If this is the problem, contact the incubator manufacturer for suggestions.
Mechanical egg turning devices are recommended and are necessary with large numbers of eggs. If just a few eggs are being incubated, the eggs can be manually turned and marked with an X on one side of the egg to ensure all eggs are turned each time. Turn incubating eggs no less than three times per day. Rotating eggs is not necessary during the last 7 days of incubation, but most continue to turn eggs until they are moved to the hatching machine.
