    Surprised you could see into them. I've never had any luck candling quail eggs so don't even bother anymore.

    Our 4 eggs went into lockdown this morning so fingers crossed, although would be surprised if any hatch.

    How eggsciting! Let us know how you go.

    Haven't seen any wobbles from our 4, so not very hopeful.

    Edited to say out mini bator does tend to result in hatch day being a couple of days later than our larger automatic one, so will give them until the weekend.

    All coturnix. Our last batch weren't the liveliest we've ever hatched either, but will still be surprised with these 4 given the start they had.
