Do female quails lay without males?

Post by WendyHouse on Wed Feb 27, 2008 7:44 pm

I have just had a brain storm and just thought, Do female quails need males to lay or do they lay like hens? Daft question but I needed to ask.

Thanks chick1

Hi,

Yes quail hens will lay with out a male, but if your wanting fertile eggs you will need a male.

Why do people not think this is the case. I wan just asked if I am sure on another forum and don't feel I'm enough of an authority to say yes they do.
