Are quail sensitive to inbreeding if the eggs are from 2 hens 1 roo? Thanks anything ya got will be greatly appreciated.

Not so rare...except this time of year for eggs. Aprophet is correct, hey are just a bob with a different color mutation. housing is just the same with bob's. Off season, covey or group housing. Breeding season, put in pairs or trios with room or your white birds will turn red.
Bob's are seasonal layers so IF someone said they had eggs this time of year, they prob wouldn't be fertile. hopefully Twocrowsranch comes along soon, she has raised bobs for years.
