    A couple of weeks ago our first batch of Quail started laying eggs. Out of 3 hens we get 3 eggs every 3 days and only 2 the other days. Not sure which one is no laying everyday. I have added oyster shells to their daily diet to keep up the calcium. Friday our other batch started laying eggs too.

    I have four hens, two of which have been laying for a week. The other two haven't started yet.
    I don't provide oyster shell since I'm giving them a game bird laying feed with increased calcium already in it. That, and I haven't been able to find oyster shell around here.
    They do get crushed egg shells every few days.
