i recently started raising phroah quail (3 months ago) and although i have read that they give out an egg a day mine seven hens only give me 4 eggs a day. is there hens that just wont ever lay? another weird thing i took out there sand box figuring that maybe they were more occupied in playing then laying eggs and when i did this the egg laying decreased to one egg a day. so i put the box back and get for 4 eggs a day most all which are laid in the box. has anyone else experienced this? i also started keeping a light on for a few hours at night to increase hours of light to see if that helps and still 4 eggs a day but now they are laying them later because of the light i suppose. can anyone help me with is problems. i want hatch the eggs i get but im thinking if the male doesnt mate with the ones that lay, the eggs for that day they wont be fertile. i also thought about separating the quail and see who is laying and who is not but read if you move quail to a new place they might stop laying for a while. so if i try this and i get rid of a hen that lays but didnt because it was in a new place i would be even more decreasing my egg production. anyone have any advice on what i should do?
