    If you think thats bad mine are on day 22 [​IMG] I can see movement in them just seems none want to come out yet. I broke one open earlier thinking they were duds as a few I cant see into when candling, this one did have a live baby in, luckily it looked ready to hatch yolk absorbed etc and it's doing fine.
    Think it's just a waiting game now.
    I hope yours come soon [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What are you hatching krstms? Coturnix take about 18 days, buttons should hatch around day 15-16 but can take longer. If you are hatching bobs, you've got a while to wait...almost a week in fact [​IMG]

    Well, yeah!

    Half the time my coturnix don't even bother to pip until day 18, and that is dicey, because the pips are hard to see. Are you sure you are counting correctly? The day you set them is day zero. 24 hours later is day 1.

    Coturnix- so that's good. I was thinking they were supposed to hatch around day 16.

    Quote:17-18 days is coturnix [​IMG]

    Now if you were hatching African Harlequin (another type of coturnix) then it would be 15-16 days [​IMG]
