    I have 18 buttons and 4 A&M cortunix eggs in the bator that have not hatched. One button hatched sometime Sunday night/Monday morning. Another pipped yesterday, but died in the shell. I only had 6 A&M eggs, 3 of which were for sure developing.

    I don't plan on taking them out yet, I was just wondering how long should you leave the remaining eggs in there? The babies have food and water in the hatcher, so that's not a problem.
    Yesterday was day 15/16 for the eggs.
