My two quail hens stopped laying about a week ago. I'm in New Zealand, so it's halfway through Spring here! They are about 9 months old. They slowed down a little over Winter but never really stopped - though I didn't give then artificial light or anything. I think they each at different times went through a molt and stopped laying for a week or so. But up until now they have been their usual once a day egg machines since Spring started. Then the both stopped so suddenly? They are eating, drinking, toileting normally. Behaving pretty normally. One's been chasing the other around a bit, but nothing major or overly aggressive. Should I be worried? Oh yeah, a few days ago I did find one of those weird eggs with basically no shell around it, just membrane. Other than that, nothing.
