    Yeah So This Is 1st Breeding Season.... Maybe A Quail Playboy Left Out By The Pen???? You Know A Lil Something With Pictures That Might Help Him Get The Idea Of How Its Supposed To Work?

    On A Serious Note Tho, Are You Marking Eggs So That You Can Trend Fertility Problems And Track It To Specific Pens? Thats Always Helpful In Case You Have A Ladd Who's Not Up To Task. Helps To Pinpoint Where The Problem Is...

    No it might just be that they need a liutlle time to figure things out, mine started mounting the girls after they were laying.
