    I have 10 coturnix quail eggs hatching today, but I see no progress in the chicks coming out its been 3 hours and i only see a little hole with the beak. I tried helping one out, but I saw blood and stopped. I totally messed up didn't expect them to hatch today because I put gambel quail eggs first and 4 days later I put the coturnix eggs. Didn't even go on lockdown it was suppose to be tomorrow. First time incubating eggs, should I help them out or just wait more hours?
