    Most sellers will try to sell all coturnix as Jumbos. To be honest, The ones that are worked on the most are the Texas A and Ms/Jumbo Whites and the Jumbo Pharaohs/Jumbo Browns. You REALLY have to work on the birds to get other colors to be anything remotely in size.

    Now with your eggs, they should hatch 17 days, sometimes I get them to hatch on day 16-18 so give them a day or two extra.

    You are fine. Just sit back and watch the show...or get some sleep [​IMG]
    Which ever you need.

    Barring any miscalculation of the real set date; incubator farts, or whatever, coturnix can hatch anywhere between day 16 and day 21. For me, they generally hatch between day 17 and 19. They can hatch short or long of that day, but you you should get a bulk hatch, which is hard to miss. Just don't try to over monkey with things, or bust them out [​IMG]
