Awesome! I am a newbie myself, and buttons are a different ball game, but I was surprised at how quickly quail hatch. They all seem to hatch at the same time too. They are very small so be VERY careful handling them, I was mortified at how many times ours were dropped as babies 😩 Also, be sure you either have a quail-specific waterer or have marbles in a chick waterer so they don't drown. They need high protein. Also, they are up walking/pecking around/exploring within minutes of hatching so I removed mine from the incubator so they didn't harm the other eggs. And have a brooder set up and ready for them beforehand. Also, get them used to you as hatchlings, otherwise they are WILD :p

So i got a tote box was gona put mesh at top cuz i heard they can start teying to fly at couple weeks old and they fly vertically bein delicate dont want them to get hurt i always put marbles in chicks water i have brought a game starter crumb speificaly for quails. Also put shelf liner in incubator before i put them on lock down so they dont slip their feet through the tray xx
