Hello and welcome to my thread. I have a couple of questions since I'm new to incubating eggs. I'm on the 10th day on incubating Coturnix quail eggs (10/3/16). When I candle them I can see the chick fully moving. It's getting harder to see day by day. The egg is almost completely dark. The air cell looks like it's on the side of the egg but the chick is still moving. Question 1: How many days does it take for Coturnix Quail eggs to hatch? I heard some people say between 16-18 days. Question 2: Do you suggest me to do a water float test? I heard people say it's best to do a float test on day 12. Question 3: Since the air cell is on side of the egg will the baby quail be okay if he is still moving in the egg? Question 4: How to tell if your egg is shrink wrapped? Last time I had to help a baby quail come out of its egg. 100% healthy. Question 5: How many days should I let the quail sit in the egg after due hatch date before the quail dies in the egg? Thanks in advance.
