I had 2 incubators with 50 bob white quail eggs in the both, yesterday at 2 pm we noticed a little hole in one of the eggs. after 3 hours i chipped away a little shell and the membraine seems very thick and leathery, so i chipped away a bit more shell, around the pip hole, i cut the membraine a bit figuring the bird could get some oxygen but saw a little drop of blood, so i immediately stopped and returned him to the incubator, i think the membraine must have had a blood vessle still in it, now it is 7 in the am, oh ya i did this this morning like right now. but i have no other eggs pipping, only the one at 2 yesterday and so its been 13 hours since it pipped, there have been no other pipped eggs. the eggs went into the incubators on the 4th and today is the 27th, today is day 23. do you guys think that bird was just early? i hope i didnt hurt him, this is my first time hatching quail and im all freaked out! its like having a bab?.
