    Grumble grumble grumble grumble grumble ...

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

    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. [​IMG]

    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​
