    Quail eggs have an incubation period of 16 days. I like to give them until day 21 incase there are late bloomers. Good luck on your hatch!

    No, let it be. Some chicks take longer than others to hatch, and it can take them anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours to get the job done. If its making progress, its fine, let it get out on its own.
