Quail laying eggs with no shells
My first Quail (fem) started laying good eggs 2 weeks after arriving. Approx a month after that she started laying 2 eggs every 2nd time. The first double egg lay occurred the day a second quail was housed with her. Every third time, she would lay a larger single egg.
2 weeks ago, she lay a normal egg, then one with no shell. Today she lay two eggs with no shells. The second quail, is not yet laying as far as I can see. But I have separated them for a day or two to check this. There has been no attempt to eat the no shell eggs. I use chick feed from a pet shop near work.
I have Zebra finches which are nesting right now as well, and I feed them special egg/calcium powder mixed with water as well as crushed eggshells which they love. Any ideas, re: diet for the Quails?
