Ok, So my turner is set up for chickens, not quail. I started with 36 chicken eggs, 30 quail eggs and 2 duck eggs (I think, 1 could be a chicken). So far 6 quail have fallen out of the turner and been cracked earlier on, I threw them out. Saturday is the day I was planning on taking them out (I set them Friday evening Oct. 16). Well today I look in and see 3 more that have fallen out of the turner. 1 is cracked to the point some shell is missing, but membrane appears intact. 1 cracked pretty bad and 1 cracked just a bit near the top of the large end of the egg. I put them where they wouldn't be more smashed, but is there any hope for them? Are they already dead? If there is any chance they are still alive I don't want to handle them anymore than I already have to candle...plus I can't see through those shells anyway. Should I get them out of the incubator? Should I leave them and see what happens? Ugh! This is the 3rd time I have tried to hatch and I have yet to pull a chick out of my bator. But things are/were going really well this time around...every egg that previously cracked contained a chick....the chicken eggs 24 of 36 have definite chicks inside and 8 more probably 4 are iffy. Temp and humidity holding steady....I am really hoping the third time's a charm you know? I noticed some of the other eggs are moving, should I go ahead and take them all out of the turner? I have chickens in there too that were set at the same time, so was planning on hand turning them for a few days since the quail had to come out sooner. Hatch day on the quail would be lockdown day for the chickens. HELP!
