    hi my little quail laid an egg at 5 weeks old, today she is sitting around looking out of sorts her feathers are all ruffled up, is this normal, i have never noticed this before with my other quails when they started laying, but i they have never laid so young, poor little thing.

    Are you giving her extra calcium? She could be egg bound.
