    If they are coturnix, they will lay in 10 days to three weeks if you put a light with a timer above their pen. 15-16 hrs a day and they will lay year round if not froze or stressed by aggression or a cat. if you have bobs or any new world quail, they will naturally lay their first spring, provided they are 20-24 weeks old. If they are of age, a light and timer will work here too... takes about the same amount of time to get them started.... When trick'n them with added light, it takes the males about 2 weeks longer than females to get excited about the whole deal. So the first eggs likely wont be fertile...... Good luck.
