Where to buy Jumbo Coturnix Quail?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm wanting to get some Jumbo's but am having a hard time finding hatcheries that have them.  I would prefer to by one-day-olds but am willing to give eggs a shot.  I'm considering buying fertile eggs from James Marie Farms as I hear good thing about them.  Anyone bought from them want to share their hatch rates and tips? Also where can I get day-old jumbo's. 

Any information would be much appreciated.

First of all day old quail do not ship very well. I would not suggest getting day old quail unless you can pick them up locally. You will not find better quality coturnix eggs than James Marie Farms. Last eggs I bought from them hatched at 86%. This was for eggs that were shipped from Louisiana to Georgia in late August in hot weather.

The hatcherys do have them but you have to get 50-100.

I had great success with JMF and consider myself a newbie.  Give them a call and you won't be disappointed.

Well I think I've decided to order from James Marie Farms.  I've just heard so much praise for that company that it is hard to overlook that success.  Thanks all!

I'm in California & have an assortment of Jumbos. I can ship fertile hatching eggs. PM me if you are interested.

Trying to find someone in SoCal that has some Jumbo (I mean jumbo) female corturix quail for sale. I'd like them about 6-8 weeks old. Willing to pick up.

Do you have 6-8 week old females for sale? Looking for large birds for egg laying.
