Quail not laying??

It's been 57 days since their birth and the girls don't seem to be laying? When will they start to lay then? A little help?

It's also very warm here and they get light too

They are coturnix quails

They'll need about 14 hours of light per day to successfully lay. If you're in the northern hemisphere where it's currently fall, you'll need to provide them with a full-spectrum bulb to give them extra light.

The later they start, though, the lower your chances of egg binding and calcium deficiency, so it's not always a bad thing for them to be late bloomers.
I'm near the equator. Which means it's constantly sunny, and they do have 14 hours of light- just that they're really, really late. I wonder why?
yeah I have two males two females, but the girls aren't laying. I'm sure due to their vent and feathers. Hopefully I'll see some eggs soon!
