    Hi there!

    I've got a qustion about adding light in the darker days.
    I just started with 2 1 watt led lights in a pen off 6'x2'.

    Is this enough power in light to result in hormonal change to keep the quails lating?

    What do the quails need to keep laying? Do they normally lay year round? Whatever their preferred cycle I'd, try to match it with the light source. Perhaps they need a rest, like hens molting. Pay attention to the natural cycles and extend them with proper lighting and/ or heat.
