What age do most of you experienced quail farmers slaughter coturnix quail?

6 weeks for uniform carcass size, 8 weeks for the top of the growth curve, 12 weeks for a little fat around the edges.

Any time after about 6 weeks, as soon as they start crowing loud and often enough that it pisses me off. Did 5 today, now marinating for tomorrow, spared the others as they were smaller and I didnt need them right away...
