After the poor performance of our first hatch. We’ve had better luck this time and now got a few friends for Zoe (our first white quail). 23 in fact! She’s taken on the mothering role like a star, showing them how to feed and drink.
Quails reach maturity and start laying their eggs in as little as 6 to 8 weeks. Unlike chickens that can take up to 6 months.
The fast growing nature of these birds and the fact they don’t require a great deal of space makes them an ideal alternative to chickens, and a great way to start producing some of your own food.
