    Howdy all,
    I've got about 40+ Bobwhites in a big flight cage, they have several hollow logs and hiding places. I anticipate they will start laying this spring and am wondering what most people do about the eggs in this sort of scenario. Is it an Easter egg hunt sort of thing?

    My Bobs tend to build nests everywhere in the aviaries, usually under branches and limbs. You will probably have to have an "easter egg hunt" nearly every day. LOL But that makes it exciting!!!
