Quail Pipping

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So my bobwhite quail starting piping on Sunday, well at least one did out of 23 and then more and more starting piping yesterday. But I am kind of concerned about them because I haven't seen any progress in their hatch. Should I be worried about them? I am used to baby chickens piping and then hatching in less than 12 hours after but I am just making sure. How long is it usually to when they pip to when they start to hatch?

I have done quail twice and getting ready to do blue breasted quail this weekend. The others I have done were coturnix. It seemed a few pipped but none hatched til they all were ready. Then it was like pop corn. One went and they all went. I read somewhere that because they are semi wild they hatch that way as a kind of security. Don't know how true it is...

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!
