Coturnix quail laying 2 eggs a day?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have three coturnix quail and I thought I had two males and one female and I still kindof do!! But I was getting one egg a day for about a month then it stoped for about 2 weeks!! But yesterday she finally layed again! But today I got one this morning and I just went out there and got another one!! Is it possible that she laid 2 eggs today? Or do I have another hen that I didn't know about?

27 goats. 10 horses. 3 red silkies. 3 blue silkies. 2 Japanese bantams. 1 Dominique. 1 white leghorn. 6 coturnix quail. 5 red golden pheasants. 1 cat. 1 english bulldog.

Yes they can lay more than 1 a day but usually just 1.

She probably laid one late yesterday and then another today...completely normal.

No she layed them both today!! Because when I feed them this morning there wasn't an egg but when I went back about an hour later (I go out there all the time) there was one!!

Did you check late last night? Mine almost always lay after dark.
