    Is there a particular breed that does this the most? Is it possible that eggs do not rock at all or peep but still hatch?

    There's nothing at all from mine?

    Quote:Good question! I've got a bunch of coturnix eggs on day 15 and I'm wondering when/if I should expect the rocking.

    ETA: My brother just moved from Canada to Essex UK. He says it's beautiful.

    Ahhh wow!!

    I'm in Chelmsford, Where abouts are you?
    Well I have 4 miniature Silkies (have you heard of Miniature Silkies? as noone else has !) 1 black one is on day 20 and 3 whites are day 18. I'm worrying the high humidity may have harmed the others as I've had it at 60 from yesterday as a comprimse! I've only got a cheapy incubator, still air.

    I thought all silkies were naturally miniature? LOL! Do you have pics of your teeny birds?

    ETA: Coturnix hatch anywhere from day 15-day 18. Usually around day 17 though. [​IMG]

    Some of my eggs dont rock or make noises, until they pip and zip. I normally have mixed breeds in my incubator, and out of 3, 2 rocked. 1 that didn't rock hatched, 1 did did rock was a DIS.
