    Hey all. I have 13 young adult coturnix. I also incubated 12 eggs I bought on eBay. I candeled the eggs and 7 were growing nicely. We are now on day 18 and the eggs are on kitchen roll in the incubator with the water well filled. I was hoping for some movement on day 17 but still nothing. I think they are rocking occasionally but there so small is it my imagination or the table shaking. I know they can hatch as late as day 21 but I'm getting nervous..... Any thoughts?
