    Could the yellow genes in Cortunix quail cause fertility issues?

    They may be. I’ve decided to stop checking for a few weeks. The Roos are quiet so I don’t need to put anyone in freezer camp. They are a joy to watch and I am getting a dozen eggs a day. When I need more I will just ask Forsythe Farms for more chicks.

    Could the yellow genes in Cortunix quail cause fertility issues?

    Thank you. Yes I have done the reading and watched the you tube videos. The vents look like a little round O. I guess they are taking their time to mature. They are almost 9 weeks old.

    Thank you very much. This makes me feel so much better. I thought there was something wrong with my birds. I have 22 quail 4 males 10 females and 8 ? 2 males crow and I get between 8-12 eggs per day all infertile. I have a light on them so they get 14 hours of light per day.

    Using DLM. Should I worm my quails?

    I too have this question. My quail are 7 weeks old and I have them on deep liter (I want them to have a happy life before I eat them) What do I use to worm the little dinosaurs? (Intestinal parasites sound really icky and I do not want to get them)

    Hi everyone! I am excited to start to raise quail in an urban back yard

    My name is Shelly, I taught oceanography for 22 years in a city located in the South Santa Monica Bay. (south of Los Angeles, CA) I just retired from teaching and have started a garden and now want to raise quail to harvest for meat, poop to compost for my garden, and the eggs will be a bonus.
