    hi i have 14 quails in an eglu with lots of cover, my quails are now 9 weeks old and i have not seen any of them mate. the girls are laying lots of nice eggs and they all seem very contented together. when should they start to mate.

    I'm sure people have said the boys can start pestering the girls from as young as 6 weeks old
