    I've got a broody quail, she has been at it for 2 weeks now. I know the other hens have been adding eggs, the last time I checked she had 12, the day before that 10.

    It's coturnix quail. They're in my chukar pen. It's about 10' by 25'. I have a bator full of eggs I might switch out on her in a few days. I'll watch her close and put a cage over her with the new eggs of all works out well.

    Update, she left the nest a few days ago. The day before we got lightning stirms. Been raining for a few days now. I hope her mark is still on her back, I used a permanent marker to give her a stripe.
