    I couldn't believe what I was seeing. My A&M's are now 7 weeks old and just started mating so I wasn't expecting eggs for another week or more and then I was so excited to see this little egg sitting in their dust bath area. I was shocked. I just had to share with some people who would understand because my husband doesn't quite get it, I don't think.

    That's a really great end to my day.

    I notice the roos must have ESP or something because that's what I notice is that they start breeding the hens right before they'r eabout to lay (just days before not weeks atleast in my experience).

    I'm glad for it because then I know eggs are coming soon...I also notice the roos only seem to breed the hens that ARE laying not ones that aren't going to be laying yet. I dunno if anyone else has noticed that but I have with mine....it's pretty interesting.

    I just wanna know how they know the hens are getting ready to lay within just days... im sure they dont smell different LOL! Maybe they make a very quiet call that the roo responds to I dunno.... [​IMG]



    BTW OFCOURSE CANT END THIS HEREWITHOUT SAYING CONGRATULATIONS! [​IMG]

    Thanks you so much. It is crazy how the roos know. I would love to find out how they can tell. These quail are very interesting.
