    Is there like a weight test a particular quail has to pass let's say over 15-18 oz in order for it to be considered "Jumbo"? Thanks!

    Yes it is by weight. I'm pulling from memory but I believe the weight at 8 weeks for standard is 7-8 oz and jumbo are 14-18 oz. There is a weight measurement for the eggs also but I can't remember where I read it.
