    Hello all, i've had coturnix quails since the end of may and my females are laying eggs. i have 3 females and just got a male from a friend a week ago. now my question is when should i start putting the eggs in an incubator? I have not seen any activity with the birds, but was thinking of giving them another week or so before putting the eggs in. any other suggestions?

    I would wait either until I see the male mate a hen or until you can be sure he was done his stuff. [​IMG]
