    I have three coturnix quail and I thought I had two males and one female and I still kindof do!! But I was getting one egg a day for about a month then it stoped for about 2 weeks!! But yesterday she finally layed again! But today I got one this morning and I just went out there and got another one!! Is it possible that she laid 2 eggs today? Or do I have another hen that I didn't know about?

    It is very possible that your quail laid two eggs.[​IMG]

    Yes they can lay more than 1 a day but usually just 1.

    She probably laid one late yesterday and then another today...completely normal.

    No she layed them both today!! Because when I feed them this morning there wasn't an egg but when I went back about an hour later (I go out there all the time) there was one!!
