    Fotr some reason, my quail have decided to go on strike. I have 11 hens and 3 roos in the pen (one roo is destined for the freezer in about a week). I was getting 5 or 6 eggs a day. They are about 12 weeks old. I feed them a mix of 30% and layena. They get plenty of water and have plenty of room in the pen. I even gave them about 75 eggs worth of crushed quail egg shell the other day and they gobbled it all up. I could probably put 20 more in there if I wanted to. I havent got an egg now for atleast a week. What cant I do to get them going again?
