I was just wondering about eggs being incubated by the hens...
One of my quails is laying eggs, all in the same place. I have 4 there now. The space is sheltered but I do not know if they are being sat on, so is there any way I can tell? Also, if they are being sat on, and I take them out, will there be any effect on her?
Is there any way I can encourage them to lay on the eggs themselves?
Thanks for any suggestions

Hi Jane, Quail are terrible mothers normally. I have one that seems to want to go broody but I just keep taking the eggs. If you do have a broody quail then it is really too late this year for her to raise a brood as the bad weather will knock the babies off in no time. Just take the eggs away and possibly try in the spring if the quail is still interested.
