What type of nesting material is best for button quails? I have them in pine shavings and they try to make nests out of that but it doesn't stay in a formed nest. I am about to get a dozen coturnix eggs to hatch and already have chicken and button eggs in the bator. So there will be no more room for anymore eggs. Now would be the best time to encourage my hens to go broody. They sit on them here and there. So what's the best material to provide? Any other tips or anything to get them broody?
