I have been wondering :what is the purpose for getting quail? Is it for meat? To hunt? Eggs?
Everyones been asking this question lately...however i can ask you a question as well. Why chickens, turkeys, ducks or geese (or pheasnts, peacocks or parrots) he he! Just pickin!!!
However, depending on the species, meat, eggs, genetics, pets, hunting, repopulating, even fishing lures (their feathers).
I have coturnix and Button quail
Coturnix are used commertially as resturant type dishes for their meat AND eggs.
I raise them for my own meat production, as well as just enjoying breeding genetics with their various colors that are popping up in them (golden, tibetan etc). They also make very cute sweet pets---mini chickens i call em
Button quail---mostly look at pets, like what a finch ina cage would be to you. But they are also wonderful for genetics!!!! They come in A TON of colors!
