    I have 1 male and 3 female jap quail, I have noticed over the past few days that they are collecting all the eggs into a nest but I haven’t seen any of my hens sitting on them, will they sit on them? Does this mean I have a broody hen? What should I do? E8844E42-063F-4454-B276-2DA4E61BDFB6.jpeg 0DE87F46-C7FA-432D-8FD6-2135DC1125D6.jpeg A053FEB0-2207-4C6D-B087-D891C0F1818E.jpeg

    I can’t help with an answer but I’m kinda in the same situation... One of my hens has been collecting eggs, and I go out to feed in the morning she does not come out, after work I go out to feed and let them range and she will come out for a while, the rest of the time she is in the nesting box... oh and her poop is hugeness
