This is my first time at raising cotournix quail. I was incubating 7 eggs, 1 hatched on Monday 3rd January. I chick tried to hatch but feet came out and loater died the enxt day. So far I have 5 eggs left and nothing has happened for 6 days. I feel they are quite heavy and perhaps were unabled to be turned automatically by the incubator. Do eggs need to be rotated every 2 hours. I haven't turned the incubator off as yet. The 1st hatched chick is going really good but quite lonely, I feel. Any advice is welcomed please.
