    i have 2 japanese quail a male and a female. last week on Monday she laid her first egg and since then till now there 8 eggs in the cage.

    some eggs are together and others are else where in the cage. there has not been any noises or any sign of the wiggling [​IMG]. is this normal and how do i check if the eggs are still fertile?

    Any help will be much appreciated [​IMG]

    Um, I don't know anything at all about quail. But I assume they are similar to chickens when it comes to hatching. Those eggs aren't going to grow any chicks unless they are being set on by the mother or incubated in a man-made incubator. I don't know what the incubation period is for quail, but you likely wouldn't see any movement or hear any peeps until the last day or two of that period.
