Cool thread! Thanks for posting. The next best thing to hunting quail is eating them.

Wish I had a place to do this again. Back in the 80's I raised some. I got 2 dozen in the spring and ended up with over a hundred by the end of the summer. And also had lots of eggs to eat.

Yep you'll be overrun with eggs. They lay one per day mostly in the afternoon. We eat them all the time ratio is about 3 quail eggs to one chicken egg.

Just moved and gave away my quail rack and stock. Can't wait to get back to raising them. Awesome on the grill and just fun all around.

Had to post in this section so no one would tell me I was in the wrong section. I posted here because there Quail. They have been domesticated for over 2000 years and they don't fly very well.
We raise them for meat and eggs, pretty tasty once on the plate.

If I had a large flight pen I'd be raising the other varieties.


They are a blast and excellent eating. You don't have to justify to NOBODY! Thanks for sharing and enjoy them as I know you will.

Of the 54 eggs you started with what was the final hatch? Thanks for posting. I wish I was able to do something like this.
