Oops…

You know what DOESN’T help with your quail incubation? Knocking your incubation lid into the incubator and crushing the eggs…

I lost about one dozen eggs, and yolk went flying EVERYWHERE, so I had to remove all of the eggs and put new towels down. I heard that egg yolk can contaminate everything with bacteria.

All told, it took less than 30 minutes to do the swap. I hope the eggs are going to be ok. Since I was at work all day, I could only turn them once in the morning, and once at night. Tomorrow, I will be back up to three or four.

Now on to fortifying a new lid that is a bit bigger…
