Hi Ronnie,

Bob white quail eggs take 23 days to hatch (I believe).If you've candled them on day 20 and every thing is dark with a light air sac, everything is as it should be.

Keep the humidity around 60-65%, close the vents on your incubator and just leave them well alone for the last three days.Remember not to open the incubator however tempting it is.

Derek.

At 25 days I would say give up, I'd also open up the rest to see what went wrong.

Did you have your eggs in a seperate hatcher Ronnie? Its sounds like your humidity was too low at hatching and the chicks were struggling to break free.

Smile Ok ... next question did you wait until you saw the first external pip before boosting the humidity? Bob's inner membrane can turn either really leathery or brittle depending on conditions
