    I have just waited two days over on some pheasant eggs and quails
    i opened the pheasant eggs to find the chicks still alive 4 of them ,1 died overnight but 3 seem ok
    the quail eggs i opened to find the chicks dead in shell ,perfectly formed
    Should we always wait or would they have lived if i had opened them
    Any comments??
