All about the Quail

Lately it has been Fast and Furious learning about the courtinex quail.  It is one thing to read about the process of raising quail and a book or on a Blog it’s a whole nother thing experiencing it firsthand. I have had the opportunity to put 36 eggs in incubator in the middle of the winter I had a 50% hatch rate. The quail have been living in the barn with all the other animals and their own space. We also build them over on. They really enjoy the outside. 

Recently, the quail have been getting pretty large and we have enjoyed the new calls of the roosters.  The quail are 7 weeks old and we have started getting eggs.  This weekend we learned how to sex the quail and came to the discovery wr have 9 roosters and 4 hens.  I have noticed some of the roosters have been getting pretty agressive with each other.  Guess we are going to learn how to clean and cook quail.
