Okay, this is my first hatch, so bear w me.
I have 12 beautiful button quail babies out if 16. 4 still in the bator. HOW LONG can it go between hatches? I read all will hatch within 8 hrs of one another but that isn't true here. Some were more than 24 hours apart. Do the rest still have any hope?

awwwww do u have an update and pics? I never did buttons but I have some on day 13 today. did you look for internal pips or listen for them? I am wondering if you can float test button quail too? I have an assist article in my signature, but its more chicken than anything. but it does have links to float testing.

Can you share a little bit about the hatch? what humidity lockdown and how long to hatch, do they pip rest and then zip like chicken or do they just pop out? LOL

Congrats I think you did very well with those numbers!
