I got the eggs inside and started putting extra  hay in with the quails to keep them warm, I turned around, the snow was stopping and the sun was coming. Now the snows gone, along with the cloud. I don't think I'll put the eggs back. If she shows interest again I'll try again. And today I think she (I don't think it's the magpie's) laid a mis-formed egg. It's very stranged shaped. The causes can be sickness (pretty sure she isn't sick), Overcrowding (don't think that's it) and stress. I think it's due to stress since I've moved her to different pens so much this week. So I am going to leave her, if she shows interest again, I'll try again.

She  most likely try again if she has any broodiness in her.
