    I've had quakers lay fertile eggs from November to March. I
    thought it had to do with the difference between our spring
    time and that of Southern America where they originated but
    someone pointed out that once crossing the equator that
    wouldn't be so. I dunno :-)

    wishing you well,


    If the twigs are hard and not pliable they might take them
    inside the nest box and break eggs. Sure I made that mistake
    too and broke my heart as well.
