Small & Mighty
Small but mighty quail are perfect for apartment balconies, suburb backyards, and homesteads. They mature in 8 weeks when the females begin laying pretty gourmet eggs almost daily, and males are ready to be processed for tasty meat.
Our quail have a variety of handsome plumage, including pharaoh, Tibetan, rosetta, English white, Italian, German pastel collection, Schofield silver collection.
Beautiful Superfood Eggs
Quail are excellent layers. They lay about 300 eggs a year, almost an egg a day. Each egg is a work of art! I never get tired of gathering them. We have both brown speckled eggs and celadon (blue) eggs.
Quail eggs are also a superfood! These little nutrition powerhouses have more protein ounce for ounce than a chicken egg, iron, Vitamin B 12, selenium, riboflavin and choline.
Quail eggs are also gourmet, often used by chefs in high end restaurants. We think they make the fanciest deviled eggs and are perfect poached on avocado toast. They taste very similar to chicken eggs, but have a higher yolk to white ratio. It takes about 4 quail eggs to be the same amount as a chicken egg in a recipe. Quail eggs also work for some people who are allergic to chicken eggs.
