Do quail go broody

I am just interested if anyone has left their eggs in with the birds and have had any quail go broody and hatch any chicks . I have noticed that after they lay they do keep pulling the eggs back under themselves. Cheers .

Yes. What breed do you have? Some breed easily others less so. If they have cover, a quiet spot without other birds disturbing them they should go broody
