    OK so I have Coturnix eggs.....
    They arrived on the 11th afternoon (Feb) which means Saturday was the 18th "technically" and today is the 20th (1 pm)

    On Friday I heard scratching in eggs.
    Saturday an egg moved or "trembled"..... I wasn't looking so not sure which one it was... but I heard it. I am almost positive twice....

    Last night one egg has a hairline sort of crack but not sure if that was there or not - just noticed it.

    I had some folks giving me encouragement but when I read other "sites" they say they should have hatched by day 16??? Oy Vey.

    How much longer should I wait?

    PS. I was supposed to stop turning on the 16th day and by mistake they all moved when I LIGHTLY bumped the container putting more water in on Saturday.

    Now ...here it is Monday and nothing [​IMG]
