    I would think it would no different then a chicken egg. How far along are you. there is a sticky thread it shows eggs that are candled.

    once you hit day 10 on quail eggs (give or take).. you really cant see much unless the egg is infertile or sloshing

    next time i hatch some i should take a few pics around day 4 or so... didn't get around to it this time
