    Nervous mother here... So please someone tell me... Should I be seeing something??... Temp did fluctuate a lot, but I have it under control now.. Float tested them found the quitter and the dud. Supposedly the ones that are supposed to hatch are viable... But idk if I am incubating dead eggs... Just looking for some reassurance or information... Please be as detailed as you can if possible..

    My temp was fluctuating all over... Did a float test... Some seemed viable... Above is the link for my egg-topsy.... If you are squeamish do not look... Glad you are following me tho ^_^
    Moved my thermostat where it was supposed to be THANKS QUINTINP!!! Now I only have a 1 degree variation.... Instead of a 8 degree variation......

    I usually hear peeping and have pips 1-2 days early, but this time... nothing. I had one pip at the end of day 20, and I had one hatch so far, on day 21. I'm hoping for the best, but even the one that pipped yesterday has been sitting that way (with no signs of breathing) for 18 hours or so. Not cool! If I don't have a bunch more action, this will be the single most expensive chick I've ever owned!!!!

    If I do have any hatch it is all thanks to QUINTINP for sharing his advice on how to fix my temp...[​IMG]

    Yeah [​IMG] indeed... At least button quail are notorious for being profuse egg layers..
