35 buttons were due yesterday and I got nothing, I decided to wait anouther day or 2 and this evening when I got home I had One little button! None of the other eggs are even pipped, no rolling or anything. I sure hope at least one more hatch so it will ahve a buddy. How long should I wait till I know no more will hatch?

Sorry no button experience here. I know with chickens a lot of us wait a few days after, but here's a bump for you anyway...

One thing I do before I turn off the bator I pick up each egg and listen. That is when I can hear if they are pecking or not. I just had quail hatch and one hatched two days after everyone else. I keep listening and could hear him trying to hatch. Then he did.

Congrats on the button but with button eggs you have to really wait on them..lol every time i hatch button eggs they always start to hatch a day late on day 17 and sometimes there not done hatching till day 19 and with all the eggs you incubated i'm sure there are plenty more that will hatch


i have 6 button eggs now in my bator from my own button quails due this up coming Tuesday ..well really Monday because Monday is day 16 but like i said they always hatch a day late with me..lol


Good Luck

thanks guys, I sure hope I get at least one more but a few more would be nice. I looked at the size of it and then at the size of my cotornix and Im not so sure I could brood him with them..lol...Id hate for him to be all alone.
