    Hi! I am currently incubating button quail eggs and I'm wondering if movement is a constant thing? I've been candling them and since day 5 they've been moving around non stop (I'm on day 8 and they still move around in the egg)! Is this normal or is something wrong? I'm really worried.

    Btw, these were shipped eggs, I've only got about 8 eggs out of 20 left and I really don't wanna lose anymore eggs. :(

    As long as they have space in the egg they'll move around. If they are slowly filling up more and more of the egg then they are growing just fine. You are halfway there so good luck. They are seriously cute babies!
