    I'm homeschooled and on my last year. If I want to raise a quail bird that is easy to Raise and Maintain, Is that a Coturnix quail? or what type of quail is easy to raise and breed so I can see from Egg to Adult to Second Gen.

    Okay, So When is Breeding season and all that stuff? Is there a site that as all I need to know? I was looking for a site with all the info I needed to raise them and most just took me to stories on raising them

    Quote:There's a ton of info right here on BYC. There's a couple of stickies at the top of the Quail section.

    As long as there's enough light there will always be eggs and chicks.

    They will breed like roaches [​IMG] Coturnix are easy to multiply. You get some hatching eggs, they incubate for 17 days (sometimes hatch sooner), and you get chicks! and in 6 weeks they start breeding and laying eggs between 5-9 weeks of age! JJ mentions they are the Roaches of the quail world which is very true!
