Should I have some male corturnix in my flock?

I am raising for eggs and meat only. I dont plan on incubating eggs but are there any reasons that keeping some males around the girls would be beneficial? Asking all quail experts

You don't need them and they can stress the hens, so I'd cull them all if you aren't going to incubate.

without males and incubating eggs you'll eventually run out of both meat and eggs unless you plan to just buy your stock as needed.

I'm guessing that's how he or she plans to get started.

Yes I just plan on getting more every other year or so. Don't want to invest time into hatching and babies.
