Probably best to try and get a few unrelated males to go with your hens. Otherwise you might get some inbreeding hiccups.

hi muhammet, welcome to the forum

breeding related quail together is not recommended, most people like to source their male stock from a different supplier.

I think that goes for just about any animal (including humans). Inbreeding can lead to all sorts of congenital defects. In quails it often leads to infertility and smaller chicks.
