Last night at 12:30 I saw a pip in one of my quail eggs!!! This morning at about 10:00 the rest pipped..It is now 2:00 in the morning! Still same pips...I can hold them up to my ear and hear chipping on the shell. I have hatched chicken eggs before and it didn't take 1/2 as long! What do I do??

I only listened to them once just to make sure they are still ok :) That was before I made this post.. And the humidity is 65-70 :) Still nothing..Do they break the membrane inside and then the shell?? I'm jus confused about how long its taking! Thanks everyone for your replies!!!

just to let ya know

mine hatched out just fine

they kept pecking at the hole for ages hours and hours and all of a sudden just started to go crazy and zip zip zip

it was all over in an hour and they where out


so dont worry they just must be resting
