I keep hearing that these quail hatch fast. Well I'm on my first try at hatching some coturnix eggs & have been reading this section for a month give or take to get ready for them. I am on day 17 & I got my first pip about 14 hours ago I have gotten 2 more pips within the last 2 hours & still no chicks. I did pull the first one to pip out & candled it because the way I was reading this flies by. I did find that that one still had movement in it. I left the rest alone & am just waiting to see the out come.
