    Hi,

    I'm new to BYC and I have been browsing around when I noticed some posts bout incubating bob whites (which am currently doing they are on day 17!) when I noticed all the different variations in days they should take to hatch. I was originally told 22 by the person I bought the eggs from... But now I'm not so sure. I have seen everything from 22-25 days. Please help me out. I don't want to stop turning them to early or too late.

    thank you!
    Melissa
