    Wonderful! My quails don't intend to start to lay. I'll have to wait for the Spring

    Beautiful Quail eggs!

    I would love to have some quail eggs to hatch in my incubator I have 3 nephews that are very interested in chickens, and one of them raised 2 turkeys. Would you concider selling some of them to me? I have hatched chicken eggs many times, and currently have a dozen mixed hens, and a Rhode Island Red rooster to guard them. I will never eat my birds! If you are interested, send me an email please....cjmorris52@yahoo.com. Thanks!

    I would happily give you some eggs but i live in the UK .
    I keep my quail in a heated room with artificial lighting, the lighting is sett on a timer to summertime daylight hours all the year round .
    This is the first year in 20 years i have not sett any hatching eggs ,so we can have a restful Christmas without caring and worrying about the chicks/growers.
    There is a very informative thread about Quail on this site, a good read .
    Decide if you would like to keep pure or mixed colours.
    The chinese painted quail full grown are the size of the smallest type of chickadee.
    And the japanese quail full grown are the size of smallest type of dove .
    Good Luck .:)
