    Day 18 for my quail eggs wad 5/16 (monday). 8 of my eggs hatched, 2 didn't hatch all the way and I have 13 eggs left in the incubator. Should I leave them another day...?

    Yes and watch them . Do you know how to candle eggs ? If so candle them to see if life remains.

    I tried to candle them..it's really hard to see because the eggs are dark. 3-5 feel heavier than the rest though...

    I would give them another day or so before giving up on them.
