    How can I make/encourage quail to become broody!
    Any tips or advice? Should or should not?

    *much appreciated*

    unfortuanately, they have been kept in captivity for so long, they no longer have the natural instinct to lay on their eggs. Every once in a while, somebody will post that their quail has gone broody, but I have yet to hear of one going the entire incubation period.
    Your best bet would be to buy (or make) an incubator. Sorry, I wish I had a better answer.
