Had a friend send me about 16 Jumbo Coturnix Quail. I want them for eggs and meat so here are my questions. 1. is it better to let the females hatch them or should I try incubation? 2. How many eggs do they lay before they sit on them and should I separate them from the male at this time? I have 3 males so they will have 4 to 5 Hens to frolic with (Wish my wife would allow me the same privilege but NOOOOOOOO0). I am reading through the posts right now but am impatient, sorry They are 5 weeks old so I do have time!
