    On May 23 some of the students found a Gambel's Quail egg on the playground, we have a ton of those quail here. I put it in the bator and it is pipping now and trying to hatch. I wasn't sure how long they took and I was actually going to throw it away because tomorrow would be 21 days. It seems like it's having a little trouble but I don't want to push it.
    How long does it take them to hatch? How many days? The quail here just suddenly appear with babies and we never see their nests, some hen just dropped it as she walked I guess.
