This is my first year raising bobwhite quail. We received the quail from Murray McMurray Hatchery, 106 birds. We planned on raising them and having some game bird supper. Unfortunately a raccoon snuck in the coop and killed all but 8. I would like to start to incubate eggs and was wondering if they would start laying before spring. How long is it till they begin laying. They are about 6-7 months old now.
