    Since my quail stopped laying, mostly likely until spring because they were outside a few days too long before they got moved into the garage while the 8x12 shed is finished for their new barn.

    I was wondering where to buy quail eggs from.

    I have plenty of room in the garage and basement and would like to incubate about 30 coturnix over the winter.

    I know that it is late in the year and getting cold as I am located in the Northeast, but can eggs be shipped this time of year?

    Let me know if it is ok to ship eggs and where to get them.

    Look at the bottom of the index page at the Buy/Sell/Trade section and under 'other poultry'. There should be lots of opportunities.

    As Kullas said, if you put lights on them, they should start back up. However, it's not quite that easy. Ironsun told me that I would need to gradually increase my birds' light over the course of a week or two, so they think that summer time is back, rather than just going from 11-12 hours right up to 14-16 hours.

    I just ordered a new bator and it won't be here for about 2 weeks so I would need the eggs then. Thanks for the offers I'll let you know.
