    Hi, only 2/12 hatched yesterday, rest look like nothing happening....not good start! Anyway, both seem to have very backwardly bent feet. I see posts about shoes etc., but these are so tiny compared to hen chicks. Any advice?? I think i may keep them in the incubator with food and water for a while as the brooder is large (for how many I thought I was going to get!). Is that an ok idea? Thanks, Greg

    Keep trying and adjust your settings. I hope someone else has some more advice.

    You can use a pipe cleaner and then wrap vetrap around the toe. Just downsize it for a quail chick.
