Well it's officially day 17 for my cortunix and day 16 for my button quail. Not a wiggle or chirp in sight!! Is this normal? My hatcher has been like a magnet since I put them in lol.png

Its completely normal for the little guys to not wiggle or chirp.

The last clutch we incubated didnt move or chirp at all but every one but 2 hatched.

Oh good I was starting to worry! My last lot the eggs were wobbling like mad so I instantly thought bad news. Hopefully they aren't to late I'm so impatient lol

Im very impatient as well, my clutch of robin eggs we are taking care of have not moved or peeped at all  just have to explore something new to me that people call 'patience'

How in the world did you come to incubate robin eggs?  I too am curious how long to incubate robin eggs and at what humidity they need.  Very interesting!
