    I don't have experience with quail but with chickens i wouldn't give it a second thought... I've done a lot worse and they have still hatched [​IMG]

    They should be fine. Think of the mama setting on the nest of eggs and how much she would be moving them around with her feet and with keeping them warm.

    No point in worrying. It won't improve your hatch. Trust me. I've tried.

    If the egg didn't crack, I'm sure everything is just fine. When the first eggs hatch, the chicks really knock around the other eggs, and they still hatch as well.

    Anything that was going to hatch will probably still hatch.

    Like they say about quail eggs,... they'll hatch sitting NEXT to the incubator. They are safe! [​IMG]
