    Wow, I thought it was a lot longer then that. So with 2 different opinions here, when do I stop turning?

    They are also Jumbo, does that make a difference?

    My coturnix hatched on Day 18 and Day 19. I thought my temps had been pretty steady throughout the incubation.

    I thought corturnix normally took longer than buttons to hatch. Arent buttons day 16-17?
