First time quail raiser here, I don't even have them yet but I'm shooting for this Spring as hatching time. I have done meat chickens with a friend before and was trying to see if it's anything like them or not. 1) Cornish-X are the main meat chickens but their genetics is a mystery and so you need to buy the birds every cycle, can't really hatch your own. Are jumbo coturnix like this or can I breed them and hatch more out? 2) Age of maturity. I have heard bobwhites won't mature until they are 5 months old but coturnix will at 6 weeks. Do jumbo coturnix mature at the same age as regular sized quail? How about jumbo bobwhites? 3) In meat chickens we raised them straight run up until slaughter, if they are all raised together do I still need to adhere to the 1:5 male/female ratio? Can jumbo coturnix be raised straight run to slaughter? Thanks in advance.
