    My little group of quail has just started laying. I have noticed a foamy substance dotted across the floor and on the eggs. What is it? Should I be concerned? They are all acting perfectly healthy.

    The foamy substance is from the males.. nothing to worry about.

    Thanks!

    Hey, I recently learned this myself as I am fairly new to quail. They are great little birds. Good luck!
