    ok all, I have a question bout the buttons. I know that the move to my house was probably really stressfull but I was wondering if I have the light on in the barn 16 hours a day, they have plenty of food, grit, oyster shells (ground up) and water. how long should it take for my buttons to resume laying again? I got two eggs so far from them . 1 was laid in the box and the other was laid in the barn here the night they got here. they have been here since wendsday the 31st.

    I have gotten 2 coturnix eggs. and plan on incubating ALL of thier eggs for the next indef period of time till I have LOTS OF THEM!!!!

    I'm not sure, but I know with chickens it can take anywhere from 2-4 wweeks, or more. I would think it would be about the same for the buttons.
