Coturnix female quails DO lay eggs without a male. And there is no difference in egg production from what I know.

My quail are about 4 months old and are not laying eggs. The lady that I bought them from had beebn raising quale for a while and she said that they were 3 females and one male. 1. Will the females lay eggs without a male present. 2. How do you tell the males from the females. I would like to have eggs and also raise some quail from the time they are hatched. Thanks

In my experience, my male birds made lots of noise and were quite aggressive toward the females. I had to get rid of the boys in my flock to keep the peace with my girls. Now things are great with the girls and they are laying eggs with no problems.

(Japanese quails) I found that the male quails do crow, but only very occasionally, and mostly when they are separated from any females in the enclosure with him. Also, my female quails wouldn't lay until I gave them a male. Male Japanese quails also fight loads when put together.

I have found the male brown courtnix to be very aggressive and a times very loud in their thrills.

Hi there, I was wondering if you should always have male quails. Considering procuring quails, for a hobby and semi-small scale egg producing. How many males per female would you recommend? Thanks for your advice!
