These birds are old enough now to go to a new home, and we are looking for someone who wants to adopt them. Why would anyone want these 5 birds? Here are a few facts about Coturnix quail to enlighten you:
1. Coturnix quail lay delicious, healthy eggs that contain 4-times the nutrition of chicken eggs. Having a few quail is like having an egg farm in miniature.
2. Quail eat very little food, but are able to produce an egg nearly every single day that is approximately 20% of their body weight (imagine that, ladies!)
3. Quail are not subject to laws that prevent some folks from owning chickens. They are small birds, usually considered a pet, not livestock, and they are quiet (for the most part.)
For these reasons, many people who cannot have hens opt to raise quail for their eggs. They are also raised for meat, which is delicious, but quite a chore for very little return!
