So, I came home today to find 3 coturnix eggs in their cage (Happy Mother's Day To Me!). The plan has been that we'll eat the eggs. Now I see them and I want baby quail! Will coturnix quail sit on their eggs? These weren't laid in the pots I have in their cage (hoping they'd use them as nest boxes). They were laid all over the place. I don't have the money for a good incubator right now, so if they're not going to sit on them then I'll go ahead and cook with them. I moved them into one of the pots all together... was that bad? And for future reference, I have a silkie pullet right now and I want to know does she have to be laying fertilized eggs to go broody? And will she incubate the coturnix eggs? Sorry for all the newbie questions!
