Hello there and welcome to BYC!

Coturnix quail are a great quail to start with. They are very docile and friendly and a great starter quail. They mature in 9+ weeks and are ready to lay. Quail are seasonal layers so if you start now, they will not be laying til spring unless you add lighting all winter. Be careful with this however as new layers are subject to egg binding being forced to lay so early in life.

Definitely stop by our quail section for more info. Good luck on this new journey and enjoy your quail!
