    I had these eggs incubatong since Jan 13, put them for lock down on the 26th. How long until they hatch about the 29th or 30th? Also any guesses of colors they will be?[​IMG]

    buttons are normally 17 days so placed at 13th means about the 31st. Mine are normally a day early so it depends on your incubator temperature if they are going to be early, on time or late.

    As for color that depends on what color the parent were.

    Coturnix quail, for me, have always hatched on the same day (day 16). Bobwhites were somewhat predictable at just over 22 days. Button quail, however, tend to be more unpredictable. The average is around 17 days, but some may hatch sooner, some later.
