This is my first time hatching quail. I have 24 eggs in the incubator and they are now on day 15.
Is there anything I need to know for the last few days? Or do I just leave them alone and wait? I did take them off the turner and I put down a cloth so when they hatch their little feet won't get stuck in the wire (I read somewhere that I should do this)
I tried to candle them last week but they were too dark to see through!

Well, the species would be nice to know, but in general, you may want to bump the humidity up around +10-15%. 45+%

Other than that, I recommend just leaving them alone, to hatch on their own.

Best of luck with your hatch!

Sorry, I should've added that! They are Texas A&M Quail.
I increased the humidity to 50%. Is that about right?

Thanks!
