since all of this heat about 2 weeks ago came through. 100-110 heat index was just crazy... my texas a&m breeders stopped laying all together and now my jumbo browns have stopped too. i have another pair of coturnix that are laying (just came into lay a few days ago but are laying daily) all birds are on 24% protein feed and have fresh food and water daily. in the extreme heat i even change the water multiple times and put ice in them when need be. i take care of my birds as best possible and thats why im a bit bummed that they have stopped laying. bedding is normal pine shavings as well as grass hay that i change weekly from their "runs" bedding inside their "homes" in no way are these birds stressed or crowded. the cages are more than acceptable in size. the birds have a lot of room to run. 6 birds at most in an average sized rabbit hutch. none of these birds are on wire floor(raised).. so my question is : is this normal for quail to take a break for a few weeks? my chickens dont do this..
