    Hello BYC Members!!! I have gone to this website for lots of research and thought it was time to join. I am 14 and over the summer for my birthday I asked for quail. I found an add in the paper for quail and they sold a minimum of 50 at a time so I bought fifty. they are 12 weeks now and 5 died over the 12 weeks. I sold 20 to my neighbor and now have 25. the only problem is they haven't started laying yet and I don't know what to do. they are jumbo brown coturnix quail. they are all healthy and happy and I don't understand it. if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated

    They need 14 hours per day of full spectrum light. Make sure you use a light that doesn't put off heat. THey don't need any additional heat.
