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…

Oh, dear! Sorry this happened and that the remainder eggs will all be okay.
They are probably dead by now… having temps get to 106 in the incubator….
Oh, I’m still not caught up on reading. That sounds pretty bad. Well, I guess the first incubation is the practice one anyway. Not that that probably makes it feel any better.
Haha. It is the house that is the issue, humidity spikes, poor air circulation… etc. I am waiting on ordering parts for A cooler incubator…
