    This is only my second time hatching quail. The first hatch I only got one live bird but many hatched and then died in the early stages of life. Now I have 6 quail eggs that have been hatching since last night(all still alive in the egg) but I don't see any improvement now and it is 9:00 am. Two of the 6 eggs have been hatching since this time yesterday!
    What do I do? Please help

    Nothing to do. Is your humidity at 65%?

    You stated that some died in the early stages of life.... this link should be of assistance to you. You didn't mention what type of environmental conditions the chicks had while in the brooder, but if you follow the instructions in the link, you should do OK.
