Does the float test really work?? I started with 53 Quail eggs and Wednesday was lock down day 14. on Friday day 16 they started hatching and by noon on Sunday I had 35 hatch then nothing for the last 26 hours. I did a float test on the remaining 18 eggs and they all floated like they were suppose to. Only about 1/4 of the egg sticking out of the water. This is my first time raising quail and then hatching out eggs and everything is going great so THANK YOU to everyone who posts on BYC. 99% of what i know i learned from reading your advice.
