I just don't understand. My coturnix aren't lacking for feed, water, or sand to play in... Yeah, i know the sand isn't necessary. But i like to let them have something to play in. I've got 3 cages of birds. Tuxedo's, browns, and tibetans. i get 1 or 2 eggs a day out of my tibetans. But none from my other cages. And before yall say they're too young. I've gotten maybe one or 2 eggs out of the other 2 cages in all the time that i've had them. And (2) of the browns are from a local hatchery. 8 months old. They both laid an egg the first day and ever since, none. What's going on? Is it the lighting? I have them in a metal shed. not an actual 'building' It's just a metal frame. with a roof and 2 sides... but no back or front.. It's the best place I can put them because it keeps them out of the hot sun and protects them from wind and rain. So. How do I get my birds to lay? I'm feeding them the Gambird finisher/layer.
