It is very possible, budgies brood their eggs for 18 days typically and coturnix eggs usually hatch between day 17-19. Whether or not they hatch depends on her skill as a parent. Has she hatched eggs before?

Yes she had everytime she laid unfertile eggs and sit on them so that time i've decided to remove the unfertile eggs and place coturnix eggs and she is brooding the eggs and once she sat on her eggs for 43 days waiting for her chicks to hatch but i've remove her eggs
