The largest eggs in my bator are the only ones left unhatched on day 16.
Coturnix hatch on day 21, and on day 18 you stop turning. (Someone correct me, if i'm wrong). I don't know 'bout Jumbo Cots, but since their in the Cot family, i suppose they would be the same. (e.x. Tibetan, Pharaoh, A & M, British Range, etc, etc, you get the point)
CORRECTION: Coturnix quail hatch on day 17. Remove them from the egg turner and put them on lockdown on day 14.
Thanks. I turn by hand and stop on 14. Most of these have hatched on day 16. Except the really big ones.
I'm new to quail and am in no way an expert(just had my first batch hatch last week) but it did seem like the smallest quail hatched first, day 16, and then a bunch on day 17, and then big ones on day 18! I thought it was strange, but the egg the littlest one came out of was really tiny! I was hatching coturnix, and not anything jumbo though.
