I bought 20 quail hens in April to release to whistling  wild cockbirds.  I only have two left.  None of the hens laid eggs.

I put my last two birds in a call back cage a month ago to ensure they had enough daylight exposure.  I have been feeding them a mix of sunflower, millet, Milo, and cracked corn.   Their water contains a vitamin supplement.   I supplement with a handful of green red clover every day.  Still no eggs.

Do they need exposure to a male to start their  egg laying hormones?
