the pre-orders bar one have been collected and I have some quail left
over. Here is your chance to get some beauties. I have one of my new
colours left that I have recently started breeding, Snowy Golden
(please refer to photo below). Another quail I have for sale is a
Japanese male with a beautiful speckled front that normally only the
Brown Golden Quails have and another male who is Golden with a brown
head and hardly any marking on him - almost just Golden all over, a
you don't want your quail straight away and would like to place an
order for June, contacting me now (with the amount of chicks you
would like) before I place eggs in the incubator would be great. I
can't guarantee the colours that hatch but I always get such
beauties. I never expected light grey chicks - another colour to add
to my list but for the later future though. I am going to breed them
with another new colour from a different covey that is fairly new.
The colour is a Grey Brown that look like Japanese normals but are a
I normally have now are: Tuxedo, Range, Normal Japanese colour; the
original colour; White, Golden and Brown Golden and Snowy Goldens (
White to a light creamy colour where golden colour normally is - Not
a "White" at all though!)
never sell related males with the females and go to great lengths to
know who are from which of my many coveys by marking them in two
spots on their bodies
raise my quail as healthy as possible also caring for their emotional
well being as the saying goes, healthy mind healthy body. The quail
receive live insects almost daily and get greens every day on top of
a well balanced diet. With this care, one of my Coturnix Japonica
hens has been able to hatch and raise her own chick recently - I will
be placing this on YouTube soon. Warning though, I was so excited!
am situated in Goulburn, NSW. Goulburn is situated between Sydney and
Canberra. It is closer to Canberra.
those people who are looking into buying Coturnix Japonica Quails
(Also commonly known as Japanese Quails) for the first time, they are
much much bigger than the King/Button Quail.
smallest I have seen C. J. Quail grow to is around 200gms. The
biggest I've seen (Colossal) is around 437 when at 6 wks old (you can
see it on my (RaisingQuails) video on YouTube) with weeks still to
grow larger. The Coturnix Quail eggs are much larger also than eggs
from King/Button Quail. Coturnix. J. Quail are roughly about 1/3 size
of a chicken egg - 12 to 19 gms.
The Coturnix J. Quail are great
pets for the small garden as they can be kept in a rabbit hutch
happily. If the fence is high, why not let them wander around freely
in the courtyard. I just open their cage and they come out freely; I
let them have a wander around then I simply pick them up before I go
inside and place them back in their cage. Admittedly, I only let one
covey (up to 4 quails) out at a time.
The Coturnix J. Quail are known
for laying all year. I am glad when mine have a small break to
C. J. Quail would make a lovely
gift for someone; adult or child, due to:
1. The ease of care they require
and as some people have commented, such lovely soft birds. Also,
2. Quail eggs have a higher
portion of yolk than a chicken egg, thus a higher amount of protein
and quails lay young.
3. Fat is low in their meat and
quail grow fast.
4. Male quails do a quick crow at
times but are not as nearly as noisy or as loud as roosters.
5. More disease resistant than
chickens and are very hardy birds.
6. Make a great first pet because
they get very tame especially when feeding them leafy greens by hand.
7. They are great for small yards,
aviary, chicken coop ( depends on the chickens though!) and are
rabbit hutch happy.
are $15 and
Males are $10
Males to eat are $5 each. I do not sell related quails with females
and the order has to be more than 2 quails at a time.
:::: Please be kind and always introduce new quail to old by making
sure they are in very close proximity where they can see each other
for two weeks at least, in separate cages. This is so they can get
close to check each other out and know who they are going to share
their home with. In the case of an aviary I would place the cage with
the new quail/s in a corner of the aviary but make sure the quail/s
has/have room to move please - no small cages! :::::
you all for your interest.
