The Moonridge Blue is a new colour variation developed here at the farm over the last five years. They are derived from the traditional wild coloured quail. We sell point of lay Moonridge Blue Quail, as well as hatching eggs. 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.
These Quail are slightly heavier than the Italian Quail and are a placid steady natured bird. As with the Italian Quail and 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.
