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?

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

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.
