    Okay I am on Day 18 for my Bobwhite Quail eggs. Two were clear upon delivery with no veins and remained that way. One cracked during incubation and dried out. The last is this egg is it still growing or has it stopped and died. I had real issues with temp and humidity in the old incubator and I switched it to the Little Giant. The temp has been a constant 99.5 to 100.6 humidity between 50 and 61.

    Here are pictures I took when I candled today

    I have never hatched bobwhite quail eggs, but if that was a chicken egg at day 19, I would say it is not developed to where it needs to be. It prob died earlier, but just in case let it go for full incubation plus 3 or 4 days. best of luck
