    I was checking my button quail eggs this morning, they are due to hatch today, and a few were out already. Then I noticed one that had zipped on the wrong end, it was more on the pointy end. I helped the chick out, it was almost dry in the egg. It seems to be doing ok. Anybody else ever had this to happen? I've hatched quit a few eggs over the years and have never had this happen.
