These Quail are Jumbo Japanese Coturnix. I keep 12 in the winter and expand the meat bird production in the backyard quail tractor (Here) for the summer months. They produce an egg a day and different from chickens, they lay eggs after only 6 weeks vice 6 months for chickens. Great for stealthy bird keeping too. Your neighbors would never know you are keeping quail. They are super docile and quiet.
