If their feed is proper (for instance game bird feed with 25+% protein and extra calcium supplied in a different bowl) and they get enough light (around 14 hours) and aren't stressed (if you moved them recently, they will most likely be a little stressed), it's just a matter of time before they start laying. I've never had coturnix, but that's what I've learned from reading this forum for months :)

I wouldn't be concerned about it, mine have always started laying at 8 weeks

Genetics and stress determine when your quail start laying. Either they are from a line that doesnt lay early or something is stress them out. Search the forum before asking questions like this if you want a fast answer. This has been asked a million and a half times at least.
