    You didn't specify what species of quail, here is a cinnamon blue face button quail (CBBQ) with her lone hatchling (also, surprisingly, a cinnamon blue face).

    We had quail but ... for some reason, I thought they never went broody. Wrong?

    With coturnix and bobwhite it is extremely rare, but buttons do sometimes.

    You should keep a few of lucy lu's babies since parenting ability is hereditary most times. You could start a whole flock of broody coturnix.
