I need some quail!!!
Button quail for fun
Coturnix Breeders for eating and eggs.
Coturnix quail are fun to! Most are alot calmer than buttons but there's some calm buttons out there. I fell in with my coturnix
Sounds like FUN
I don't know about button quail, but as far as eating, and egg production... You can't go wrong with coturnix! Just remember that coturnix taste like coturnix, not bobs/valleys/etc.
I started my coturnix project about 4 years ago, as a way to produce my own eggs at first, then meat later on. I haven't purchased a grocery store chicken egg since. Except for the time a few thanksgivings ago when my sister wanted to make deviled eggs. I pulled 3 dozen coturnix eggs out of the fridge, and was quickly sent packing to grocery to buy 2 dozen chicken eggs.
Other than that, I do fine with my coturnix eggs.
I love my courtnix......they rock. They are egg laying machines and their meat is yummy yummy.
I hate when people are sooo mind over matter. We eat the eggs from all the birds we raise (except buttons, and only cause they are so small)..... I often boil them up and chop them up....people are non the wiser......and say my those are some fresh eggs. Yep fresh quail eggs...........then you watch their face turn upwards...............
Now on the other hand, my sons bus driver loves getting fresh eggs in the morning.....after his route he goes home to cook yummy fresh eggs. I often hand him a handful of what ever I collected a few minutes before. And he loves comparing the taste vs size vs what ever he likes. He loves them all and thanks me all the time.
