    We're on Day 17 with our Coturnix Quail eggs..and we're starting to think we aren't going to get any at all. None have pipped at all. So sad waiting 17 days for nothing..

    What has been your average temperature? Coturnix can take up to 21 days with 17-18 being the average. Do you have any wiggling or rocking? All is not lost yet.

    It's a still-air, so I've kept it between 100-102. Humidity was 45%, but I've gotten it up to 55% now for the past 3 days.
    I hope I get at least one. I haven't seen any movement.
