Valley Hatchery’s Jumbo Egyptian Coturnix Quail Hatching Eggs offer an exciting journey into the world of poultry keeping. These remarkable birds, boasting a distinctive reddish tint due to their roux gene, set themselves apart from the standard Pharaoh Coturnix. Their unique coloration isn’t just for appearance; they’re also feather sexable, allowing you to distinguish males from females as early as three weeks old. The males feature brownish-red chest feathers, while the females display tan feathers with black speckles, adding a vibrant touch to your flock.
These robust quails, when given proper nutrition, can grow up to an impressive 14 ounces. They are prolific layers, offering daily eggs that weigh between 16-20 grams each. With the potential to lay up to 300 eggs annually, these quails are a productive addition to any backyard or farm.
Quail keeping is increasingly popular for good reason. These birds mature rapidly, reaching full growth at just 10 weeks, with hens starting to lay eggs at 7 weeks. Their easy maintenance and fast maturity make them an ideal choice for both novice and experienced bird keepers. The males begin to crow at about 5-6 weeks of age, marking their journey into adulthood with a distinct sound.
