    I have noticed in the last three days i havent gotten any eggs from my coturnix. It has been in the high ninties here in Kansas. I have them in the shade. Just wondering has anyone else had this issue?

    I'm in europe, but mine also stop laying in the last two weeks, now slowly starting again, maybe they were just needing a pause.

    I got six new hens on the 4th, and they have given me at least five eggs a day since. It has been in the high 90s every day since. I was expecting them to not lay a thing after coming from another state but they haven't missed a beat.

    Mine are laying better than they ever have... When it gets really hot I give them some electrolyte mix in the water.

    Has been a heat index of 100 - 109 here for about a week and a half now, and eggs are still falling out as usual.
