I have some Texas A&M and some jumbo coturnix eggs in the incubator......I have read conflicting information on how many days it takes them to hatch and when they should go on lockdown....I've read anywhere from 16 on up to 21 days to hatch.....can anyone raising these quail help? Please? Thanks!!

I've only heard of them taking about 17 days to hatch, +/- a day or two. I would lock them down on day 14.
