Have you candled them? Do you have calibrated thermometers inside or are you trusting your incubator's readings? What was the humidity?
We candled three a week ago they looked fine. We are trusting the incubator temperature and the humidity stays at 40% - 50%

Never, never, never trust the incubator's readings. For coturnix quail, 40-50% humidity is a bit high, but should still be okay. It's a good humidity for hatching time, so keep it there for now.

I would candle them again to see how they look. Since your chicks are late, I'm guessing that your temperature was low during incubation. They still have a chance, but if they haven't hatched by day 20, they're not likely to.

Here's an article that might help you.
