    A&M are coturnix quail. Tuxedo is a color that is found in both coturnix quail and button quail, but I'll just assume it's the coturnix version you are talking about here as well. So, as they are all coturnix, they all lay like coturnix. Whether that means they lay seasonal or not, is another discussion - but a coturnix quail that doesn't have any additional light usually won't lay during the winter, so I'd call them seasonal.

    You can just place a lightbulb in or near the cage and set it on a timer so they get 14 hours of light a day.
