    I have pharaoh quail. Some days I get 15 eggs(30 hens), some days 3 eggs, and have gotten 20 something already. Here is my question...My neighbor who lives about 300 yards from me just got 27 females and 9 males. He got them on 9/2/12 It has been 3 weeks + and in the last 6 days he only gets one egg a day. I did not think the move effected them by fact they have better living conditions.He feeds them laying crumble just like I do. So please can someone tell me what I can relate to him to look for or to do.Thx...Chaz

    How much light are you guys getting?

    The birds can still be stressed from the move into a new environment.
