    Welcom to BYC!

    I don't know a lot about quail. But, did they disappear, (like, eaten by something) or just...die?

    Welcome to BYC. Perhaps someone in the 'Quail' section will be able to help.

    I would say get a necropsy done. If you are by a teaching college a lot of times they will do it for free or cheap....... At least you'll know, Good luck!
