    Our farm got some new Coturnix Quail a few days ago. I just love the little guys! They are so calm and curious, compared to my thinking (flighty). They are 5 weeks old and there are two "golden mutts" and a white. I will be getting some Golden Speckled Italians soon too. What great little birds!

    I love mine! Unfortunately they are older now and not laying as well. I'd love to get more, particularly the true JUMBO variety but can't seem to find anyone with hatching eggs. Any recommendations?

    I've read they don't lay well after about 1.5 years old, unfortunately. Whatever eggs you can get, you could throw in an incubator to get your next years batch. Otherwise, I'm not sure where you could get them. I'm in Nova Scotia, Canada.
