    Hi, everyone!

    What height and width is a true jumbo quail?
    I've done lots of reading on keeping coturnix, and I'm currently building a hutch for the 9 JMF bloodline chicks I have. I can't seem to find any info in my searches for how big dimensionally true jumbo get, like JMF jumbo, so I can make a properly sized cutout entryway for the enclosed end of their pen. The area will be enclosed on all sides by plywood, with a hardware cloth top and a plywood door.

    What are your cutout/entryway size recommendations? Thanks!

    I don't know the exact blood line weight but the average jumbo is usualy 160 2 200 grams some times even 300 but those are rare

    Thank you, Banana. Do you have a height for how tall they get? I was able to find lots of info on their weights but not their dimensional sizes. Thank you!
