    Today is day 16 for my hatch of 10 button quail eggs and only 1 hatched out so far..
    She (or he) hatched around 5 in the morning today, I think.
    None of the others hatched out and I'm really worried about the lonely one.
    I have 5 adults but I don't think it's safe to put the baby with adults.
    She (or he) is currently in it's brooder all alone, crying so sadly. [​IMG]
    Do you think it is possible for other eggs to hatch?
    It's so sad to hear little bq crying all day.
    Little bq tries to come out of brooder by flipping its tiny wing. [​IMG]
    I don't think it's cold since I'm using 40w watt...

    Will it be fine to spend a night alone? I'm really worried.

    I would put in a stuffed animal in there to keep the cbbq company. You are right. It is too little to put with your pairs. Hopefully you have more to hatch.

    i've head that the dollar store feather dusters work pretty good too in the brooders, b/c they can crawl under and inside them

    Oh yes the dusters are nice! I had loners that made friends with dusters...they are adults now and when they see the duster, they are like "my friend!!!"
