About

We are a family of four living in the mountains of Colorado with a flock of 26 coturnix quail. These birds are interesting and amazing egg producers. Hopefully you can learn a few things from our experiences and be successful raising your own quail.

  1. I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. You make things very clear. I was wondering how best to “crack” the quail eggs when cooking. What’s the name of the gadget that works?

    1. Glad you enjoy the blog. Quail eggs are best opened with Quail Egg Scissors or Cutters. The inner membrane is pretty tough so trying to just crack them open like chicken eggs is difficult. The scissors can be bought on Amazon or eBay and are inexpensive.

  2. in your incuview all in one review I noticed that you have your eggs in cartons? I am wondering why? How do they turn like that? Or is that after lockdown? New to hatching and I’m considering that incubator.

    1. I tried incubating in cartons like that as an experiment after reading somewhere that it might increase hatch rate. It didn’t and was a waste of time. To “turn” the eggs n the cartons, I was just propping up one end of the incubator and then switching sides every few hours. It didn’t increase my hatch rate at all. The IncuView turner works just fine.

      With the IncuView, dial the turn rate up to the max and have it turn once an hour – no carton. Just eggs in the turner. I love this incubator. I put about 50 quail eggs in at a time.

      Do me a favor. If you decide to purchase the IncuView from Amazon, click though one of my Amazon links so I get credit. You won’t spend one cent more than you would have anyway. Win-Win! Thanks!! šŸ™‚
