Just get a silkie. I currently have 8 out of 10 silkie hens brooding.
4 degrees is still too much fluctuation. In still air you want 102 at the top of the egg. Over 104 for any length of time will kill them.

Chickens don’t like change so that with the heat would definitely throw them off laying.
Mine freak out when I completely clean their coop....
Ridgefield, but would drive up to an hour to meet up.
Temp fluctuations can cause all kinds of problems.
I’d use the guides on here and assist at this point.
Depends on what kind of quail but I thought 16 days.
Keep humidity up and give it a bit more time.
Looks like a cockerel to me.
They won’t be moving much if they’re cold but if heated up again are likely fine. The internal egg temperature is more stable than shell...
IME if the chick has developed well the saddle shaped air cells aren’t an issue at draw-down. They draw down into normal shapes and the chick pips...
I would give more time. They did not look like quitters to me.
The air cells look fine but overall development is less than would be expected for Day 21. I’d guess Day 17-19.
Those look a bit small. Looks like low temperatures. Give them more time.
I think humidity also plays a large part with mixed egg hatches. Bantams tend to have thinner shells and in my experience need higher humidity....
I’d candle and see which are developing, etc.
Look up splay leg
I’d aim for 99.5 or at least 99. You can put a drop or two of water/vitamin/etc on her beak it certainly won’t harm her.
Is there a reason you...
Malpositioned chicks pip through inner and outer membranes at the same time and take longer to hatch.
I might take it out and apply coconut oil...
Might offer older ones later. Not quite ready to part with them.
That can’t be helped. They’re way too young to sex.
