I have read numerous posts about advice on how to encourage the button quail hens to start laying. I know they need some time to get used to their surroundings but it has been 4 weeks and still no eggs. Their diet is high protein with meal worms and grit, so i don't think thats the problem. I live near the equator so we get about 12 hours of light all year round. do i need to provide additional light?? the last thing is do i need to provide a lot of hiding spots?? i had a little hut but they would only spend time there afraid so i took it out so they could get used to me. Should i put it back in? any advice or answers welcome!!!
