I bought some quails 2 days ago and they are not laying eggs what shall I do
Not an expert, but as I understand the stress of long/quick transport will take some time to settle down and get use to environment. Wouldn’t worry at all at this point and sure some experts will weigh in on this for you.
X2 what @Danny C. said.
It could take them a couple of weeks to settle down and start laying for you (quail don't like big changes). How old are they and were they laying before being moved? Watch that they are all getting along as stress of any kind will prevent them from laying and sometimes you just get the odd one (male or female) that likes to make trouble and be bossy.
Depending on where you live, some don't start laying till April. But since they're freshly transported birds, that's likely the reason.
Sit back and wait! Feed them at least 21% layer ration they need more protien than a common chicken.... then wait some more. they will lay when they are mature enough and get ready to lay. Its still early and were gaining daylight each day.
