So my "new" quails basically each laid an egg a day for about two weeks... then all the sudden I've gotten no eggs for the past 5 days! Food, water, shelter, number of birds is all the same... they are inside a heated closet... the only thing that was different is that I took all the eggs and ate them all the day before I stopped getting eggs, which I'm sure was just irony. Has this ever happened to anyone here? I see no evidence of egg eating, but maybe they are real good at cleaning up their evidence. Chickens at least, get yolk on everything if they decide to eat their eggs. Any ideas? Anyone have issues with their quail eating their eggs? I'd test egg eating if I had an egg from them that could be used as a guinea pig egg. ETA: Temp is about 45-55 in the closet, they are on 16 hour day light cycle, and are on game bird feed. About 3 months old now, I don't think they are at a molting stage, as they look the same. It's probably just part of the jinx from eating all their last eggs and saying out loud that I was going to collect all new eggs to hatch.
