We picked up week old bobwhite quail in July of 2008 and just started getting eggs beginning of May 2009. I read that may be because they don't lay in winter.

Gamebird feed is optimal but nonmedicated starter will work too.
Give them green veggies to munch on to. They also enjoy sand
for dustbathing and grit.
