    Hello, so I'm on day 16 of incubating my 21 couturix quail eggs and I have no pips nothing the temp Is at 100-101 f and the humidity is around 60-65 I put them into lock down on day 14 yesterday I had t bring the incubator with me in the car for a 5 min drive but I wrapped it up in a blanket and put the heater on also these eggs were shipped but I candled them all and about 18 of them look fertile but I just want to know if these will hatch or if they will and when I should give up on them I will keep you posted by the way I put the eggs in the bator In the after noon and put them in to lock down early in the morning so I guess I will just have to wait and see [​IMG]

    wish you luck. I just had the same thing happen to me with serama eggs. They hatched on day 21. I read they are suppose to hatch on day 19. My nerves were shot by the time it was over with. LOL.
