SKU: N/A Category:

Japanese Quail are the traditional wild coloured quail. We sell point of lay Japanese Quail, Japanese Quail hatching eggs, and day old Japanese Quail. These quail have a very steady nature and are a dual purpose bird suitable for eggs and as a table bird. The male weighs between 8-10 oz and the females weigh between 10-12oz. The male has a russet breast and the female a speckled breast.

The Japanese Quail are slightly heavier than the Italian Quail and tend to be less flighty. As with the Italian Quail, the Japanese Quail males can be quite active and can cover up to five females. We tend to keep them in trios or quartets for breeding purposes. There is no need to keep any males if you do not require fertile eggs. A good all round bird.
