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. We currently have chicks available from our last hatch of 2020.
We have had a productive year so far. Our hens are once again laying very well. There are also adult males available if you’re looking to put a scrumptious treat on the table. (See this recipe for an idea of how exotic your next barbecue could be!) See the table below for availability and pricing.
