    3 hens and one rooster valley quail in the quail pen. For 15 days straight I get 2 eggs per day. The last 5 days, nothing. No hot or cold weather, just Washington.

    Any ideas?

    Perhaps they've discovered how edible they are?

    I have two not in the incubator. I'll give it a go on Saturday. I hope that isn't the issue.

    Went to drop an egg in to test, found two eggs. Looks like the BYC magic has struck again. Complain here, and it gets fixed.
