Coturnix can be fun! and addicting shhhhh...... You will enjoy them!
Quote:Just wait till you get some eggs. I went crazy trying to hatch some of mine. Of course, about 99% failed. But we got two babies, and that was worth it
Addicting, oh yes...I always have coturnix, cbbq (button quail) and Marans eggs in the bator...
i have hatched plenty of quail. out of 150 eggs i got 137 and my brooder wasnt big enough so i had to build a huge brooder so now i hatch other peoples eggs for 1.00 per egg and when they hatch .50 per chick
Quote:This business model intrigues me! I need an excuse for buying higher priced/capacity bators. Hope you don't mind a PM
To the OP... Yes, coturnix are addictive!
Given the proper diet, light, etc... 6 hens and 2 roos should give you around 6 eggs a day. Hatch 2 days of eggs, then it's 10-12 more, and so on, and so on.
I've done chickens, but what kind of brooder do quail like/need? How much space? How long does it take to be ready to go outdoors?
