Quail

One of the earliest accounts of quail as food dates from approximately 1500 BC!  Our quail are prodigious layers, beginning to do so at just 37 days old.  By six weeks, the males are ready for the table.  With a dressed weight of 5-6 ounces, it takes two quail for one serving.  They make a delectable meal. 

These quail are classified Coturnix coturnix, coturnix being the Latin word for quail, and are also know as Japanese, Egyptian, or Pharaoh Quail.  We raise a jumbo variety.

Our first hatch of quail for the 2020 season is growing nicely.  We have eggs available now, with both chicks and mature birds ready soon.  See the table below for availability and pricing.
