I have 23 beautiful quail and tomorrow they will be 6 weeks old. I got two eggs today for the first time. Amazing how soon they begin to lay! The roo's are crowing but not quite so loudly as last year. There are birds in my backyard that are much louder. As long as they don't crow in unison and all night long, then I will be happy. And they will live to see many more weeks of life. Also, I just switched them over to normal gamebird layer and the poop does not smell as bad as when using the high protein feed.
