    When the eggs are ready for "lockdown" should we be able to see movement? All the shells have a mass inside and my hubby says he can see the blood vessels in SOME. But shouldn't we be able to see a twitch or something? My serama eggs I put in last Friday are developing so far, I really hope we didn't somehow fail at quail, evenafter the bad start we got with these eBay shipped eggs... [​IMG]

    I did see some movement, but you have to sit in fromt of the incubator and watch very closely.It will move only a little bit and may not move for several minutes after. This is my first hatch with quail, soi was in front of the incubator alot!! [​IMG]
