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.  We do have adult birds available.  

We have had a productive year so far.  We have adult hens and breeding colonies ready to go.  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.
