In this heat I'm having to water the hanging baskets twice a day. I hope they pay you well or are the best of friends!

Well Kathleen dumped her first batch and has promptly decided she wants another lot (normal for her)! I hope the eggs I gave her are fertile.

Lucky they can't open the door, they would probably be inside ;)

Did I do my entry correctly? I'm really not sure what the procedure is, and wasn't able to find any instructions in "How do I?"

I had the best day today. Yesterday was Day 16 of quail incubation (Day 15 is lockdown for quail - Day 18 is official hatch day) and we had a surprise early bird. Day 17 - today at 7 AM we had a power outage that lasted for 5 hours. At 8:00 AM we had chick #2 hatch. At 8:30 we got the inverter plugged into the hatcher and running. There were a few hiccups... I was shocked at how fast the temp plummeted in the incubator. Anyway, about an hour later, we had the popcorn effect happening. We never expected this kind of hatch rate: We have 1 rooster (Silverman) in with 14 hens.
I got most of them into the brooder late this afternoon, plus a few still in the staging area (incubator, feed and water available) drying off. I just went up to check on the hatcher and another one has arrived. I never expected this kind of hatch rate. So far we have 28 and counting. This is huge, because quail eggs are notoriously difficult to candle, so most people don't bother, myself included. I tried. I failed. Anyway, given that I expected half to be infertile, I have to concede that Silverman has been busy.:-)
Oh, by the way, quail chicks are so stinking adorable.
