Young King Quail & Fertile Eggs

Posted By: N Porter | message me | 12/9/2018 12:40:29 AM

PRE XMAS SALE. Free unrelated male King Quail with any purchase of my females. ONLY 3 MALES & 3 FEMALES LEFT! More hatchlings due to arrive very soon.

If you would like quail eggs for eating and not breeding, you can easily prevent broodiness in females and have a male as well. To stop your females going broody or sitting on eggs which could result in more little quails hatching all you need to do is collect the eggs daily. A baby quail does not start to develop in the egg until the mother hen sits on them and provides warmth. The hen only does this once she gathers a clutch (small group) of eggs in a nest. 

I will have 4 to 7 week old King Quail (Coturnix Chinensis sometimes called Chinese Painted Quail) for sale, Females $15 (3 females left and more available soon), Males $10 after Xmas or on own. (Darth Vader F $20/M $15). Females and males available in a variety of colours (Including: Silver, Cinamon, Cinamon Pearl, Golden Pearl, Cinnamon Splash, Darth Vader and Normal/wild type Red Breasted). ††Females nearly sold out, more should be available by the end of December†† 

Females are great egg layers from aproximately 6 to 8 weeks of age. Their little eggs are very nutritious and yummy 😋. They are wonderful snacks for children and adults. I also sell their eggs to eat if you don't have the facilities or time to keep your own quails. $4 for 1/2 dozen and $8 for a dozen. I feed all my quails organically grown greens from my garden. Absolutely no chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides are used in my garden, yard or home. They are also fed a variety of high protein organic seed. I believe in raising my quails in the most natural way and only use holistic methods to maintain their health.  I do not use any chemicals in raising or looking after my quails. No medicated food or antibiotics are used. I use natural and holistic treatments to help keep my quails healthy and happy. I have some notes on this in my general information document provided with any purchase of my quails or eggs.

If you are looking to breed my females will go clucky if put with a male. I have a 93.75% hatch rate.

I breed and hatch all my quails naturally, they are not hatched in an incubator. You can have 1 male with 1 female (smaller area) or up to 5 females per male if you have a larger housing area. These quails are wonderful pets for small spaces and kids. They are only small ground dwelling birds about the size of a closed fist. Also, be aware that despite their small size they can fly short distances (usually directly up) when startled. They can live at the bottom of an aviary housing finches and canaries. My females and fertile eggs sell out quickly! 

I do not sell day old chicks as I don't separate chicks from the mother hen until at least 4-6 weeks of age when their genders can be identified.

For anyone wishing to hatch their own eggs in an incubator, I also sell fertile King Quail eggs and can post Australia wide ($30 per dozen or $15 for 1/2 dozen). Eggs are collected from different groups of females housed with different males. Please note some of these eggs/hatchlings will be related and are marked accordingly so you can tell which ones are collected from the same groups. I have an excellent hatch rate from my sitting hens with clutches from 5 to 9 chicks.

A general information sheet to help keep your quail happy and healthy can be supplied with any quails or fertile eggs for first timers. This includes info regarding diet, habitat, breeding/hatching and troubleshooting.

I am very open to swapping and trading of same sex King Quail of around the same age to help improve the genetic health of my quails.

My Quail are not to be purchased for food. Pets only please.
Thank you 🐣💕🐤
