Coturnix Quail

Good little Birds!

A review on: Coturnix Quail
The Duck Ladie

Pros: Require little space, Lay well (When it's warm), Quiet, cute

Cons: They spill their food EVERYWHERE! , Some will make a Dash,

We have four of these little birds. They are very Cute, as well as very quiet. They don't require much space. They all lay at a steady rate (When it is warm, as soon as the cold hits they shutdown) The main Con is that they spill their food EVERYWHERE. You have to have a pan (We used a Baking Sheet) under their feeder (If you have wire caging). One of ours tries to escape when I open the lid to...

“I must say when I first saw these geese in person I instantly fell in love with them they were so beautiful and let me just say intimidating! They weren't even being mean they were just so large and loud! My two goslings (9 months old)are just so protective of me and the rest of the flock they bite everyone and everything! They get an attitude with me sometimes but aren't brave enough yet to...” --poult

African Harlequin

African Harlequin

“ These birds are lovely. If you train them up well, they'll be your friend for life, and if not, they will refuse to fly or even boink if you clip them. They need quite exact conditions to get them to lay, but put them in a quiet spot with plenty of cover, and you will be rewarded with plenty of eggs, or even chicks. No matter what anyone tells you, they will not die if not kept...” --TehLizardKing

“I got a breeding pair last Spring. The male was more interested in staying with the flock of ducks. The female often wandered around alone. She ended up getting taken by a coyote at about 3 months, sadly. The male is not AT ALL aggressive. He is quite timid. He honks rather infrequently, but when he does, it is pretty loud. Not very bright. They are a smaller goose, just the right size for a...” --Nikosbirds

“ I've had Anconas for over a year now, after admiring them for awhile before then. I LOVE them. My two hens are fantastic egg-layers. Since they started laying early this spring, they hardly ever miss a day (except for my hen who went broody - she took a few weeks off during incubation, and then about 1-1/2 weeks after they hatched she is back at it!). They are also quite calm and friendly,...” --wordgirl

“I actually posted in a comment by mistake but I love my Aylesbury drake.  Absolutely adore him.   He has so much personality.  I had two brothers but lost one to a fox attack.  They are not aggressive, they love to wander around the garden, they shout a lot and dont like being on their own.  My boy needs a companion but i have to wait until Spring when its breeding...” --julia305
