    I'm feeding my quail feed, scratch grains, and mealworms. Only getting 2 a day from all of my quail combined- 10 female quail. Any solutions?

    It's molting season, are you seeing feathers on the ground?

    Give them 3-4 weeks and they should start up again. If they don't you may need to run lights. Depends on where you live and how many light hours you are getting.
