    15 out of 23 japanese quails has just hatched yesterday and it was day 17. I also saw 1 egg that has pipped but it hasn't hatched until today so I tried helping it out but i found out it was already dead in its shell not moving. I am wondering if the other 7 eggs still have a chance to hatch? When i pick the eggs up it feels like there's a chick in there.

    I always give any eggs up to 2 days after hatch date before I throw them out.

    since you're only on day 17 i would wait 3 days...day 20 before tossing them.
