    Hey peeps, I am looking for a breeder who raises jumbo coturnix and has super massive breeders. Does anyone on here have them? I remember an old discussion years ago about the JUMBO jumbos but, I can't find it. Anyway, Im looking to get some fast growing jumbos.

    so I called Robby with James Marie Farms. Oh my! The absolute nicest guy ever. He talked with me for nearly a half hour about all things chickens; feed, egg grading, incubating and hatching, raising quail efficiently, processing, etc. He steered me to the A&M's and I know I will be very happy. They are perfect for what I need. I haven't even received my eggs yet, and I would recommend this place. They really know their stuff and have been raising quail since the dawn of time. Thanks, BYC peeps. I knew I could count on you [​IMG]

    Just a question, what is considered Big when it comes to quail?

    some people say they have 1 lb. birds! and over!! That's originally what I thought I wanted but, quickly realized that getting birds to that point will cost a lot more time and feed and will, in the end, be less profitable if I plan to make a little business out of this. So, yeah.. monsters do exist but, it may take you 6 months to grow one out. The point of quail is getting them to maturity quickly. A&M's get processed at 5 weeks.

    That's a big quail, my husbands father used to keep birds, and my hubby is trying his hand at quail. I know how tiny these birds are. Can you mix the larger and smaller birds?
