Ok today is day 21. I need u guys to stop me from doing something stupid .... like candling the eggs tonight. Right? I should just wait it out???? Maybe I am asking the wrong people! lol! Anyway it is just 3 eggs. We started out with almost 30 but 7 were quail. Only 2 quail hatched but they were a day early so I thought my lf would come a day early too. That was yesterday. Nothing. No peeping. No rocking. No pipping. Maybe the last 3 died too but they were alive and kicking at lockdown. What are the odds they all died? I guess something could be wrong. So I am trying to wait at least until tomorrow, day 22, to candle. I can do it, right???

Anything is possible. I don't know what type of bator you're using, but if the temps were even slightly on the low side, eggs can hatch late. I wouldn't candle today. Good luck with it!!

I use an LG and I try to run it a bit hot(I am impatient!). I try to run it around 102 but I am not 100% sure where exactly that temp is since my thermometer is big and bulky. I have the hardest time getting my eggs to hatch early!
