    Anywhere Between 8 And 12-14 Wks Depending On The Strain Of Bird. Some Mature Very Early While The Bigger Jumbos Have A Lil More Distance To Cover To Get Full Size For What They Are.... So They Take A Tad Longer. They May Well Lay Eggs Before Full Size Is Acheived- Pretty Much Anytime From 6wks Old On They Can Start Producing Fertile Eggs.

    Is it normal for some coturnix to be bigger than the others even if there the same age?

    That goes for any animal I would think . . .

    Too many variables to have them all be the same size.


    In my batch of siblings, there are big, bigger, and biggest.

    the last batch I hatched I separated the biggest into one pen and put the smaller ones in another and about half of the small ones seemed to have a growth spurt I think they were finally getting something to eat they were,nt competing with the larger ones for food??
