I've been hatching eggs for a few years now but this was my first go at buttons. I have over 50 eggs sitting in my incubator and a single chick here on day 16. I have no other movement in the incubator. I know this does not mean they are necessarily dead and this one could just be early! However it has been about 13 hours since I found them hatched and they have not taken a single sip of water or a speck of food as far as I have seen... they have just cried and cried for company, and only make happier peeping or lay silent when they're cradled in or under my hand! This is my very first quail, and as such + with no other chicks I have 0 frame of reference for what they should be like! Brooder set up is a 10 gallon tank, fine feed in various sizes spread across a paper towel floor (game bird startena) and water in a tiny lid, heat source is an EcoGlow 20 which I am worried may not be enough without additional teensy bodies to huddle up. They sleep under it and whenever they are quiet them are usually contently under there, does this mean they are warm enough? The bulb I could have swapped it for EXPLODED (excellent sign, not foreboding at all) so I put a soft stuffed animal under one part of it to absorb heat and for them to snuggle under, but they have not taken to it yet. I have poked at the food and water and dipped their beak multiple times but all they want to do is throw themselves at my hand and try to scramble up my fingers. Nothing I tried to teach them. They've been this clingy since I reached in to the incubator. I am most worried about getting what they need in to them. On that note while they seem very mobile, they fall over a lot and have since I viewed them in the incubator, like so: I was not alarmed at first. They're doing way better at this whole walking thing than I did at a day old after all, and even big chicken chicks fall while learning. In the last half hour or so however it seems to have increased dramatically. Any time they try to move they do a full tumble at least once or twice, and I cannot for the life of me tell if these wee legs are spraddled. Are they going to die from dehydration/starvation if they don't eat in the first 24hrs unlike chickens? Is it normal for them to be so tumbly? If they are spraddled, does anyone know a material I could use to band them as I imagine many things used for chickens are simply too heavy! My first instinct would be veeeery thin strips of vetwrap but they are so tiny I don't even know if my shaky hands can wrap them.
