    I noticed she was getting over bred so I released both males a few days ago and added 3 more girls but still no eggs

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    8 weeks is only approximate... every bird will be an individual. And it's heavily dependent on light for quail is my understanding.

    Is it legal for you to have released them? That's a poor choice and exactly how we get non native species out competeing native species... but I guess if you didn't know any better... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Adding the other 3 girls is a new stressor even though you let the boys go... so it could have an effect.

    Waiting for eggs can be so hard. Just be patient and they will come!
