Chick pushing other unhatched eggs around?

My little quail egg hatched one or two hours ago, and is curiously exploring.
Now she's pushing the eggs around -- which I know isn't that good. BUT, do you think the eggs being pushed around can still hatch?
I can't take the little chickadee out now, she's still drying off.

There are 34 eggs in the bator...

Not quail, but chicks in the incubator---and I had concerns about the rough bumping into the eggs as the newly hatched made the rounds.... All turned out fine. My guess is that they will be O.K. --


Hope you get some good answers from quail raisers....Happy hatch!

Hello,

Don't worry about the newly hatched quail pushing the eggs around.. that kinds wakes the other eggs up telling them to hurry up and hatch. Which is why many people notice once one quail hatches next thing you know they are all hatching

Congrats though on your hatch!
