    mine are hatching as we speak. just keep the humidity right, turn them at leats once a day.
    if you candle them you probably wont be able to see thruogh them so dont give up hope. just leave them in the bator and wait. I put fifty siv in and it is really hard to turn them by hand. if you have a auto turner, put two in each egg cup. i found that little tip out yesterday, the day before the hatch. goog luck.[​IMG]
  3. Hi Swiftfoot,
    My Button Quail hatch well with the same temps and humidity as chicken eggs, just in 16 days instead of 21.
    There's a super link Jody sent me way back and if I can find it, I'll add it.
    Nope, don't see it. Check here and see if you see incubation tips and guidelines:

    Good luck with your Buttons!
