    Lockdown is day 18. The water test you are doing is a ' float test'.

    Enola lock down for coturnix is on day 14 or 15. If you just go to lock down on day 18. Probably nothing is going to hatch.

    No problem enola. I just wanted to make sure the original poster didn't get confused

    This is why I say please identify what type of quail you raise. Enola is talking about bobwhites and you other guys are talking about coturnix. You'll get a lot better info if you start your posts with what species or at least put it in your signature.
