Hello!

I have about 40 quail eggs in the incubator that were collected over a couple of days. Yesterday evening I noticed only one had an external pip but it was on the wrong end. By the time I went to bed it had made the whole slightly bigger but no progress overnight. Will this little guy make it on his own? He is definitely still alive in there. His beak will move once in a while!

Nope, it looks perfectly fine. My quail are slower hatchers than my ducks even. The fastest I've ever had one hatch from pip to zip was 22 hours. The longest was 49 hours from pip to zip. They take forever. He'll get it on his own. What's the humidity at?
