I just got another pen of quail...6 females and 1 male. While setting up their cage I made some changes to the other cage that I have. I put bathing pans in both pens and have noticed that the hens have started laying exclusively in the bathing pans instead of all over the floor. I was planning to slant my cages so the eggs would roll to the front, but after seeing this behavior I am thinking that nesting boxes might be better for the hens. Has anyone else noticed a preference for laying in a specific area as opposed to randomly?
