Quail interbreeding issues?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Do quail have interbreeding issues if you breed the hatchlings from the same rooster, but different hens?  This could possibly happen when there is one male to 5-7 hens.  Do you folks find it best to hatch your own eggs or get a new batch from a professional breeder?  Has anyone had a problem with stock weakening or deformities d/t possible interbreeding?

 

Thank You,

Same roo, diff hens is no problem as long as the roo doesnt have any problems.

I'd suggest you get started with a few birds and getting your fertile eggs from a breeder.  After you're comfortable with raising and keeping quail, you can branch out to breeding and incubating.
