    I have some courtix quail eggs in incubator this is my first time attempting to hatch these btw. My first egg on day 16 now has pipped about 9 hours ago followed soon after by another couple. How long does it take them usually from pip till hatch? When should i become concerend about them being shrinkwrapped possibly or intervening? Thx for any tips.

    It could take 24 hours or it could take 2, dont get too worried about it. Leave your incubator closed and your humidity high and they will be ok. Let them stay in the incubator for a day and if the others havnt hatched by then they probably wont.

    Good luck to ya
