    My coturnix just started laying. Got one egg on 5/31 and two yesterday. Both were in late afternoon. What time of day do your quail lay?

    Mine just started laying this week too! It is pretty awesome. They definitely don't lay in the morning. So I come home to the little treats late in the evening.

    Someone down the street was tossing out an old chicken coop. I put some doors on it and got some more quail. Now I am up to 28. They seem to lay in the afternoon as well.

    Mine used to lay at about 10 p.m. or early in the morning, now they lay late in the evening.
