    Button quail hatch at 16 to 17 days, so a day early might be due to how you are counting the days off or a slight variation of temp in your bator as you didn't mention what you are using. You will find that once they start to hatch, they pretty much all hatch within a very short period of time. Good luck on your hatch!
