    Ok, we are on day 22 of our hatch. Six of the 10 hatched and one of the four left had pipped, but then nothing. I see no movement and am assuming now that these four are not going to make it. Any advice on this would help a lot.... I had no sucess before on candling, so I don't know how much longer to wait.

    And we have quail eggs now - coturnix - and need to get the bator ready for that. They are fine now but need to go in by tomorrow. What temps and humidity levels do I look for. I was told they hatch sooner than chicken - is this right.
