This is our last hatch till spring, and we decided to hatch some of my sons' quail eggs. We put 7 in the bator on the 4th (in the AM, around 10ish), but one went in the day before,making a total of 8. We had the early one hatch on the 19th (it went in the bator on the 3rd), then had 2 hatch yesterday, then another just a few minutes ago. Still have 4 in there, no pips or rockinh or peeping from them. I did have two temp spikes in the last 10 days- both went to 104 ( ) but only for maybe 2 hours before I noticed and corrected. I dont think it was long enough to speed development of the chicks, and it would be weird for only a few to be further along than others, right? If it helps, I am using an LG with fan, used an egg turner till lock down. Humidity was around 30-35 till lockdown, then it goes up to about 44-50, maybe a tad higher during hatch. Sorry I was so long in getting to my actual question! I was wondering, how early can they hatch, and how long should I leave the stragglers in the bator waiting for them to hatch? I dont want to disrupt the temps or humidity to do a water test since they are (maybe) so close to hatch. Whats the longest incubation time anyone has had when hatching coturnix quail? Or do I have my dates wrong?
