    For the game species like bobwhite, valley, gambles,etc....it is usually rare for them to brood their own eggs in captivity but it can happen. For button quail I have heard it is quiet common...and I have never heard of cortunix quail going broody in captivity but I bet some do.
    Good Luck:)
