Yeah, my on professor at uni said he thought so too, (oddly enough he just happened to overhear me and used to raise bobwhites growing up), I was told cots but have been suspicious since they arrived..that's good to have confirmed!

Someone said I should be seeing slight movement of the egg? It went into lockdown a day ago (today is day 22), is this true? Unfortunately only one of the eggs made it to lockdown so I'm really anxious about this chick hatching

I don't think I've ever seen cot eggs move.  Sometimes I think I might, but I think that's just wishful thinking.  I wouldn't worry about not seeing any movement.


Good luck.

Yeah, I keep thinking it may have very slightly twitched but it's so **** small..also, I forgot since I first started on this thread I have been corrected, and I have 1 bobwhite, not corturnix. Though that's not what I was told was being shipped to me..
