Hello, I just recently bought a pair of quakers because my mother had one from a baby and I just fell in love. I couldn't find one very easy although I live in a state where they are not considered illegal. Anyway i've done all the research, I've built the nesting box, and they are of age to breed. I want to raise them so others can enjoy what I did when I lived with my mom and seeing her. According to the breeder that I purchased them from I live in Arkansas and they came from Oregon to a bird fair in Tulsa, I have their DNA records and when they were done and all those records, I have had them only for a month. My question is how long does it take for a female quaker to lay a clutch and will she. From the research I read, they only lay twice a year. and from what the breeder I bought them from she hasn't yet. Am I doing something wrong? Any advice?
Hi and welcome to the forum, most people on here just have one Quaker. You might want to search up a breeder group as they could offer you lots of tips and help. One thing I do know is you need to be feeding a very healthy diet of fresh foods and pellets
they are 2 years old. I spent alot of money on them. I want to breed them because pet stores just dont sell them anymore and they are so loveable. I was told they only lay twice a year. Im not sure on that either. I suppose i just need to google everything I can.
