I love math!
Well, they lay an egg a day once they reach 8 weeks, so hatch a hundred, keep the 25 hens and 8 males, and eat the rest. Then you will be able to continually keep hatching from 25 eggs from one days collection to 175 from a weeks, or you can eat the eggs. If you have that first batch, youll have 70 quail for the freezer, which is enough for a meal of 3 quail each for 21 meals, plus freezing and selling.
Like I said, if you hatch that initial batch.
Will update later! on my phone.
