Grumble grumble grumble grumble grumble ...

No, that's ok. I have Jumbos from Sam now, and I really like the goldens better than the whites.
I like that patch of brown, though... character!

It is funny that you say that, because I have NEVER caught one of the quail laying an egg. Not the Buttons, not the coturnix, not the Bobwhites. The closest I've come is picking up a warm egg, but unless I put each hen in her own cage, I'll never know.

Lol yea it's funny how quails lay there eggs so fast but chickens it takes them a few minutes to first find the box they want then stand in the nest for a few seconds then set down then wait about 10 or 15mins then lay Lol

i haven't caught my button hens lay yet either ..they do it to fast for me to catch them​
