    When did you buy your quail? They take a couple weeks to start laying I gave mine 3 weeks and they started, could be mating season though so maybe take the males out for a bit.

    Good luck

    Ive had my quails going on 3weeks and still no eggs. All are adults now. Did yours start laying yet? How long did they take?

    Are you feeding them proper food, are there too many males, are they in a good house?

    I like feeding them some game bird feed mixed with a bit of chicken food and some
    Oyster shells. I would also recommend a rabbit hutch if you only have under 10 quail.
