also known as Pharoah Quail and Japanese
VARIETIES THAT I KEEP ARE LISTED BELOW
PEARL FEE, SPARKLY, ITALIAN, MANCHURIAN
These birds have been in the US since
the 1960's and first made popular by Albert Marsh, Marsh
Farms, in California. They are easy to keep and extremely
tame birds. This type of quail makes both an excellent pet
quality or as an edible table quail.
This is "the" quail to have if you
want great egg production, fast growth, and a large size
bird. The eggs hatch in 17 days, the young grow very fast
and can be fully mature and laying eggs at 8 weeks of age.
THESE ARE AN
EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR IN CLASS SCHOOL PROJECTS AND ARE
READILY AVAILABLE ALL OVER THE US.
Since their introduction in the 1960's
many new color varieties of these quail have surfaced and
their popularity has increased as pet birds.
