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...

“ 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 found a wild pair of these in my front yard, but they acted surprisingly tame and weren't too hard to catch. I have no experience with birds except for a couple of old hens somebody gave me some years ago and a pair of parakeets I had, but it wasn't at all hard to learn how to take care of these birds. I put them in my parakeet cage and they started laying eggs immediately, every day. They...” --mtgrl

“I would suggest these birds to someone who has had experience with some birds, not as a first pet to anyone. I am just starting to tame mine. Besides that, let's move on. These are the most friendly birds I have met. (Pecking-wise.) I have never been pecked by one. Not even once.     Overall? Are nice but that does not mean you should have them as a first pet!   Thanks for...” --TheNeonPanther

“ Jumbo Coturnix (Japanese Quail) a fast-growing, excellent entry level "game" bird for meat and eggs.   incubation time is very short, chicks grow very fast and with good stock and strict husbandry efforts a decent covey of birds can be propagated to produce meat, eggs and new stock.   Many different breeders have created "call names" for their birds. These, sometimes...” --MobyQuail

“ The jumbo Brown Couturnix are my favorite bird breed by far. At 6 weeks old they start laying eggs and boy do they ever lay well. You can also butcher them at 6 weeks old and get about a half pound of meat which is alot for quail. Their mating calls sound neat and they are very calm compared to alot of quail breeds. ” --quadchick77

“Great quail to raise, beautiful feathers and in my opinion not as flighty as most suggest. Our birds are tame and will eat out of our hands. Their call is annoying to some. They do get very aggressive in the first part of breeding season and establishing pecking order if raised in community pens. Overall a must have for any quail hobbiest.” --UncleFrank
