I pipped open an air hole to see if I have at least one that will hatch and all where dead. They only half developed. I think it was the power outage that brought it to 86F.

I'm sorry to hear that, I've had great luck with Coturnix but I haven't had a single Button pip let alone hatch out of 3 tries. I know one of mine was due to a spike in temp. after a power outage while I was home and the power came back on and baked the eggs.

Thanks. its my first time with a 0% hatch rate so it is kind of messed up. I got some coming in next week so hopefully they will hatch.

I dont know how long the power was out. but 86F sure did do it. The temp was fine after the power came back. 99F and the humidity was at 50-60%

oh I'm sorry to hear that! Those were the eggs I traded you? I've got some more if you want to try again- let me know after this hatch if you need to try it again. So sorry though- they are so adorable when they hatch out! Tiny little fuzzy things!

Yes please. I wanted to get some pics for you today of some fuzzy butts. Maybe sometime this weekend we could meet at the same place?

I beleive last week. I still have a bunch of bulbs to trade. I found some yellow cannas and red cannas at the very bottom of the box. I can do that with some mixed phlox and a pack of toad lillies.

Sorry to hear about your button eggs.

I only ended up getting 2 chicks out of 10 eggs to start with.

I am going to order another batch of eggs.
