    Hi all! I'm on day 24 of incubation for my bobwhite quail. Temp is 99F, humidity is 70-75%. I put them in lockdown day 20. I have a still air LG.

    I had one pip about 15 hours ago but I don't think it broke the membrane. It was just a small break in the shell. It moved slightly a few hours ago. No other movement.

    I did candle one egg and I saw that it wasn't in the air cell yet. Couldn't tell if there was movement or not.

    Should I be worried? Also, I'm really wanting to candle another egg to see if it's in the air cell but I'm also trying to just sit on my hands. Someone tell me to leave them alone! Haha.

    Also we are having a really bad storm here in Wisconsin. Any tips on what I should do if the power goes out?
