    Am I correct in assuming that you've had the birds for less than 3 weeks? If not, do you have more than one male per cage? Stress is a very common cause for quail to stop laying and both moving them and having more than one male per cage are common causes of stress.

    We'll need more information. When did your quail stop laying. Do you have just 1 quail or many and how are they housed? What's changed for the quail before they stopped laying?

    Any change can make them stop laying. If you change the birds in the cage, they'll stop. If you move the cage, they'll stop. If you burp audibly as you pass their cage, they'll stop.
