    Hello all, I was wondering when some of your hens started laying because I recently started raising quail and everyone told me that they wouldn't start laying till 7 or 8 weeks old but one of my hens layer an egg at only 5 1\2 weeks old! Is this normal to be laying so young or was I mis-informed? Every answer is appreciated
