So it has been 5 days since my Coturnix Quail laid an egg. Her name is Houdini because she is known to pop them out like magic!!!! Currently, I have 3 girls. One full grown and two chicks that are about 6 weeks. They all live together and get along well. They are spoiled with fresh ground up treats from the garden, diatomaceous earth, plants, grit in their food, places to hide and always the freshest water..... Could any of these cause her to stop?: -we had a heat wave when it started -she eats chick starter (since housed with little ones), seeds, grit, and even scrambled eggs (just tried that today incase she is lacking protein) -there is no male quail -the quail pen is situated next to our back slider door (maybe too in their face?) -urban homestead, is she stressed by her environment all of the sudden? Things I have tried: -plenty of water -scrambled egg -built an extra shelter (little stick hut) -closing the curtain to the slider door Are you supposed to have a male? I ONLY raise them for eggs, so I didn't know if a male would make the eggs inedible.... I added quail to my urban homestead about 2-3 weeks ago, so anyone's help is appreciated! I look forward to really getting to know how to give them the best and add to my little "flock" in the very near future. Thank you in advance!!!
