    so 5 weeks old...I have had some that started to lay at that age and I immediately moved them to a darker area to make it stop. They need to get big before the laying starts in my eyes.

    Quail Lady its funny that you said that I was kinda thinking the same thing but at the present time i have no way of doing much about it unless I cover them with a tarp and it 85 degrees with 85 % humidity here right now and I feel the negatives with no air flow would be way worse right now. But for all my futer birds i do have a plan for a new cage that is starting construction tomorrow where there will be shorter days and i think i will keep all birds over there until 8 weeks. As I said im new to this but I think the early laying of eggs at least means im doing something right Im never going to have a great number of quail I just want them to be healthy and be as big as possible. I can see (I think) it is going to be possible to raise quail that are 16 oz or bigger by getting the right bloodlines, the right diet, and selective breeding. But I have been wrong before! Thats why im actively pursuing eggs that are from people that seem to know what know what they are doing and also seem to be truthful (as you have) and dont seem to mind giving a beginner some helpful advice.
    Thanks
