    Does this mean eggs are soon to come? Hope so.

    I think I have more male than females, which sucks but I am hoping to change that number when they start laying eggs!

    are they coturnix, or bobwhite, or anyting else, with coturnix if you got more males then females, there will be fighting, won't be as serious as bobs but it can get bad. the females will start laying when they are ready, males humping just means that THEY are ready, might be, as they say, "shooting blanks"? who knows.

    eggs will come, how old are your quails now?

    Well I believe they are over 6 weeks, and I received a mix of eggs while most were Coturnix. Much to my surprise I checked on them today, and had two eggs!

    No, what should I do with the eggs?
