    Just wondering when I can expect mine to start up again. It is still pretty cold (for Oklahoma) being around 32 at night and up to 60s some days. I have never had quail before this year so I don't know what to expect from these birds. They are all 6-9 months old. I was getting nice big pretty eggs before in the Fall and then nothing since then.

    They should be laying any time now. Late March or early April and they should be geared up to lay.

    Got first egg today. Just in time for our vacation. LOL. Oh well, we have friends coming over to check food/water and collect eggs for us.
