Really Expensive Eggs
My other problem was light. Quail are supposed to get 14-16 hours of light a day in order to lay eggs. I have 2 quail in my store room with the light on so I thought if anyone was going to lay eggs, it would be them. To my surprise, I found 3 eggs in my outdoor cage which is covered with a blanket and a trash bag to keep out the rain. I never would have thought that they would be laying now.
Let's see how much money I have spent on those eggs. The birds were $50, the food and sawdust pellets $35, the wire and stuff to make their cages, probably $50. That's $135 divided by 5 eggs so far. Hmm...only $27 per egg!
