Quail require much less space than hens (i.e. a rabbit hutch will suffice approximately 4 birds) and in general are easier to keep too – making them great for first time poultry keepers.
They are a good all round bird. Unless you require fertility a male is not required, although if desired, a trio or quartet is ideal for breeding purposes. The hens are not naturally great mothers and normally wont incubate their own eggs – instead, they could be incubated, taking 17 days to hatch. The chicks mature at 6 weeks of age.
Generally, they will lay around 300 eggs a year. They are fed a micro layers pellet, also available from Wynnes in 7.5kg and 20kg
