    Today is day 3 of lockdown and Hatch day for 15 of my Button Quail eggs,

    I have only been really watching 3 of them that I know are rocking a little bit but nothing big! It's very subtle...
    Should they be doing more moving around now that we are on day 3 of lockdown?

    I never really noticed a ton of rocking - just the occasional little sway. If you are on day 3 of lock down, the biggest thing to be looking for now is pips.
