Help with bobwhite quail egg lockdown!

Hey guys! This is my first time hatching bobwhite quail and I have a quick question!

I just candled them all as today is day 20 and there was movement/complete opaqueness in 28/33 eggs (yay!). However, I noticed that only about 10 out of the 28 were almost completely opaque and the others still had quite a bit of open space left in them (even though I saw movement in them all). They filled the egg about 3/4 full. Is this normal for bobwhite quail? Should I delay lockdown? I just remember my chicken eggs filling up more space before lockdown.

Thanks so much for any feedback!!
