I just got about a dozen female coturnix that are just about to be laying age. I live in WI and the daylight cycle just dropped below 14 hours a day. It will be at about 13 1/2 hours a day by the end of the month. I've read that they need 14 hours of daylight to lay. I plan to extend this light with a lamp later in the season, but this is my first attempt at birds and I'd kind of like to see the "fruits" of my labors before I dive in and spend more money with a lighting set up. Do you think they'll start laying with this kind of daylight or do you think that if it's a little below 14 hours they won't want to start?
