You will need an incubator for hatching your eggs. Quail eggs take a bit shorter than chicken eggs to hatch. If you order a large number, you might want to consider adding a quail-sized egg turner to your incubator.
Quail are fun and quite easy to raise. Although the small chicks do need attention and care, quail in general are hardy and adaptable. Most species – especially the coturnix and bobwhites do very well in captivity. Quail are usually raised for production of eggs or meat and for sporting and hunting purposes.
