    I have 17 mexican speckled quail eggs in my incubator, it is day 23 and when I woke up this morning one was rolling around a bit and heard a ticking sound like it was trying to pip. None have managed to pip. The eggs are shipped and I know that could reduce hatch rate. What do I do? Will they hatch? How much longer do I leave them in to make sure they aren't late to hatch?

    I opened it up for no more than 10 second and candled 2 of them to make sure. One was VERY pink like there was something inside and the other was pretty pink like something was inside. That gave me another boost of hope.
