    With coturnix eggs all I have been able to do is check to see if they are dark or glowing. Keep the dark ones. Throw the glowing ones out. You should be able to see the difference by 10-12 days.

    I use a 60 watt bulb inside a can with a hole in the lid. With the splotches on the coturnix eggs it is really hard to make out any details. the good thing is thay they hatch quickly...
