    Yay! My lone female quail finally laid her first egg this morning! I was a tad worried since I had to cull the three males that lived with the poor girl. I'd had her for almost three weeks and I figured being alone would affect her laying rate. But turns out, spoiling her as an only child has paid off, and this morning I was greeted with the most beautiful egg ever. Thanks to everyone for their advice that made this possible!

    Nice egg! How old is she? Maybe you should add a few more hens so that you can actually make a meal out of it!

    Oh I totally plan to add more birds. I got mine from a guy off craigslist and he sold me 4 "females" but three of them turned out to be males! I'm going to order some eggs and hatch my own, so she has friends eventually.
