Dive into the delightful world of poultry with Valley Hatchery’s Jumbo Pharaoh Coturnix Quail Hatching Eggs, a perfect blend of whimsy and productivity. Known fondly as Pharaohs or wilds, these quails are a marvel in feather sexability. With their distinct chest plumage, sexing these birds is a breeze. The males boast a striking rust-colored chest with a well-defined chin strap, while the females display a charming grey-mottled breast adorned with speckles, and notably, no chin strap.
These quails are not just a visual treat but also a powerhouse of productivity. Reaching a mature weight of up to 15 ounces with proper nutrition, they are the gold standard for meat and eggs. Starting to lay as early as 6-7 weeks of age, expect a daily bounty of 16-20g speckled eggs. Keeping them in recommended ratios of 1:4 or 1:5 ensures a harmonious and productive environment.
Often described as having “wild type” feather plumage, these quails exude a natural and earthy charm. Whether you call them jumbo browns, jumbo wilds, or SLB (sex-linked browns), they are all the same fantastic bird. With a calm demeanor and not being flighty, they make for an easy and enjoyable rearing experience.
Upon receiving your hatching eggs, a 24-hour resting period before incubation is essential for the best start to your hatching journey. While Valley Hatchery assures the safe arrival of your eggs, hatching success can vary due to shipping and incubation factors. Any breakage must be reported immediately upon arrival.
