    Give them time lol....I know it is hard but they will hatch when they are ready...I have had eggs rock and then hatch 4 days later. Coturnix hatch I would say between 16-18 days but just because they dont hatch during those days doesnt mean they arent going ot hatch at all....sometimes there are factors that can make the eggs hatch later...like lower temps during incubation...etc.
    GOOD LUCK!

    Don't worry - just when you think it's over, they hatch. They'll be fine - they take lots of naps.
