Early arrival of quail eggs
On Christmas Day I found a quail egg in the quailhouse. The quail had stopped laying in late October and we are not expecting any eggs from them until March. But one of them has started again and every day except one since then, a quail eggs has been waiting for collection each morning. We are having unusual warm weather for this time of year and I'm wondering if that is what has caused this one bird to start laying so early.
