Recently I had an enquiry from someone wanting some quail to put in their aviary with their other birds. Quail are a good bird to have in an aviary as they will pick up the seeds that fall to the ground.
I had four japanese quail left from the nine I had hatched recently and the gentleman wanted a few quail hens for his aviary. My quail were nearing 6 week old. I wasn’t a hundred percent sure of their gender. A couple of them looked like they might be male and the other two looked like females.
Quail hens start to lay from 6 weeks so in the next week or so the quail hens will start to lay and the customer will know how many males and females he has. I have said that if there are more males than they want then they can return them.
If you are thinking of hatching some Japanese quail then I have Japanese quail hatching eggs for sale.
