    Candle the eggs if you can, look for movement. No cracks or breakage? If not, they may be ok. Quail eggs are pretty thick shelled and they might just be allright. Give them 2 or 3 hours to settle before you candle and DONT give up!! They may just need time to re-settle before they get on with growing and then hatching. Oh, and if you candle, listen really close for any peeping or scratching sounds coming from inside the eggs.


    Let us know if you candle and the results.

    I too have button quail in bator unfortunately they are not mine. On day 12, I noticed the turner wasn't turning, had been on vacation so I didn't know how long it was off. BF swears it was turning when I was gone. Turned it back on. Oh yeah forgot to mention I've never hatched quail, So I did what all good hatchers do and went straight to google.....well one site said they hatch at day 16. I in turn took eggs candled all, removed clear ones and put all the full eggs back in. Now on day 15 I go to look at eggs and the bator is off [​IMG] Someone not mentioning any names (DBF and the doesn't stand for darling either) unplugged it to use extension cord. The temp dropped to 87*. Got everything back up and I'm on day 16 what are my chances? [​IMG]
