Welcome to Casa Grande Quail

Jumbo Coturnix Quail were not the first livestock I raised when I started homesteading. Originally, I bought five rabbits and those five rabbits turned into 50 in eight months. That story can be read at HostileHare.com
As much as I love rabbits for food and fiber, they do not lay eggs. At the time I lived in an HOA that did not allow chickens or other fowl. I needed an incognito egg layer and Jumbo Coturnix Quail were just the ticket. The jumbos are larger than other quail while still remaining 40% more efficient than chickens. Quail require less space and attention than most other poultry. Since they start laying eggs at 6 ½ to seven weeks old, they require much less feed than a chicken to get up to egg laying age. This makes Quail the instant gratification livestock. If you are impatient about growing your own food and need something that has near instantaneous return on investment, Jumbo Coturnix Quail are the way to go.
