Coturnix Quail

We are excited to announce that coming in 2021 we will be offering Pharoah Jumbo Coturnix and Celadon quail for sale! We have partnered with Hopkins Heritage Homestead to bring you these homestead essentials.

 

Quail are a versatile and unique addition to any homestead. Quieter than chickens, they can be kept in the city as there are no ordinances regarding them. Our birds are exceptional as we provide mineral supplementation, probiotics and electrolytes and high protein feeds.


There are many benefits to quail. For one, quail eggs are superior to chicken eggs. They contain more fat and protein 

by weight, double the iron and riboflavin, and about one-third more vitamin B12 than chicken eggs. Quail eggs are also hypoallergenic for most people unlike chicken eggs. It takes 5 quail eggs to equal one chicken egg in recipes. 

Possibly the most significant benefit to raising quail over chickens is that quail are sexually mature at 8 weeks of age verses chickens who take 5-6 months to begin laying. Another win for quail over chickens is they are coop ready much faster. Quail hatch in18 days and only need supplemental heat for 3 weeks before they are completely coop ready. Production is often higher with quail because they lay every day as opposed to chickens who lay every one and a half days. 

Jumbo Pharaoh 

Jumbo Pharaoh Coturnix quail are valued for their egg and meat production. Ready to process at 6 weeks and laying by 8 weeks, they are one of the fastest meats to grow out. 

Celadon

Celadon is a variety of Coturnix with a recessive "celadon" gene that results gorgeous blue eggs! They come in a variety of colors and lay stunning blue eggs, sometimes with brown flecks. Ready to process at 6 weeks and laying by 8 weeks, they are one of the fastest meats to grow out.
