RAISING QUAIL FOR MEAT & EGGS: 5 BEST BREEDS

In recent years, raising quail has become an increasingly popular choice for homesteaders with limited space who want to secure their own food supply.

They take up very minimal space, yet still, provide high-quality meat and nutrient-packed eggs.

These five best quail breeds will give you the highest yield on meat and eggs, with some of the lowest maintenance, cost and trouble.

1. COTURNIX QUAIL

The most popular quail breed in the world, the Coturnix will start laying eggs at six weeks of age, and average between 200 - 300 eggs per year.

2. BOBWHITE QUAIL

The bobwhite takes longer to reach maturity than some other quail breeds, and will only lay between 100 - 200 eggs per year.

3. BUTTON QUAIL

Also known as the King Quail, these birds are smaller than other quail breeds, very quiet, and well-behaved.
