Reasons to Add the Jumbo Coturnix to Your Farm
There are several benefits to adding any version of quail to your farm- they are one of the best ways to add eggs and meat onto a farm for a fair price. There are several different types and reasons for adding a quail onto your farm. One of the most popular quail breeds, the Jumbo Coturnix, is one of the greatest additions that you can add.
The Jumbo Coturnix is Really Big
As the name suggests, the Jumbo Coturnix is bred for its size. This quail breed is the fastest growing and the largest of any quail species. Typically weighing around 14 ounces, this bird is huge (in the world of quail).
The Jumbo Coturnix lays Big Eggs
A big motivator for many farms to add quail to their homestead is to have super nutritious quail eggs on hand all year long. The only issue is that it takes a lot of eggs to fill one person. The Jumbo Coturnix fixes that problem by supplying bigger eggs compared to the average quail with the same nutritious value.
The Jumbo Coturnix provides more Meat
This quail breed is bigger, which means that it provides more meat than other types of quail- which is great when you take your farms meat production into account. The Jumbo Coturnix doesn’t skimp out on nutrition either- it holds all of the vitamins and minerals that the other quail breeds hold.
Not to mention that this meat will taste delicious in any chicken or game bird recipe.
For someone serious about their quail production this year, the Jumbo Coturnix is an excellent addition to any farm. From their increase in egg size to their increase in weight, there is something to be said for the increased amount of nutrients that a Jumbo Coturnix can provide.
