Getting Started Raising Quail

Not incredibly different from raising backyard chickens, raising quail will have you harvesting eggs and meat in no time – and their calls are cool too!

It takes about three to four jumbo Coturnix quail eggs to equal the size of one chicken egg. But, quail start laying much younger, usually between 6 and 8 weeks of age.
