I am having the same issues. Our coturnix hens have all of a sudden stopped laying. They are only about 10-12 wks old. They were laying an egg a day. Now nothing. :( Any help would be appreciated. Are they old enough to start a molt? Thank You in advance.

If I'm correct since fall is swinging around (Canada for me) its going to be molting season soon and than winter which they won't lay unless you force them to, so mine are
laying they're last couple weeks of eggs
