I've got 4 female coturnix and two males (I think), and I've noticed a drop in egg production since I got them from up to 3 eggs everyday to only one every few days. I read that they give around 300 eggs a year, which means that on most days there should be an egg. But I only get 1 egg from 4 hens every few days, so there must be a problem. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the feed i'm giving them. I feed them the same stuff I give my pullets: I feed them about 1 cup of this mash twice a day, is it ok to give my quail? They have free access to grass, grit and water. They also receive organic veggie scraps. One of the females has a large lump on top of her beak. All the females have feathers missing from mating damage.
