    I have raised pharaoh and button quail for about a year and a half and loved it :) but now I am expanding to raising bobwhites and I didn't no how regularly they lay. My buttons lay an egg every day but I didn't know if I could expect that with bobwhites. thanks for helping me while I learn the ins and outs of raising bobwhites

    I personally do not know a lot about bobwhites, but after doing a bit of research they apparently lay all summer long.
    They should start laying at around Mid-March or April, and then stop at around October, as they are seasonal layers, but it really all depends on how much light they get and where you live.
    They also don't always lay daily, but instead once every one or two days.

    They can but usually 5 eggs in a week is typical
