Japanese White Quail are hardy and cute little birds that thrive in small cages and are inexpensive to keep. They are affected by common poultry diseases but are fairly disease resistant. Japanese quail mature in about 6 weeks and are usually in full egg production by 50 days of age. With proper care, hens should lay 200 eggs in their first year of lay.
*Please note that it takes 3 to 6 weeks to process your order* We are a small, 100% solar hatchery and have to use electricity sparingly. Because of this and our commitment to raising some of the finest chickens in the world - orders can take up to 6 weeks before they are shipped. Thank you in advance for your patience.
Live birds can only be shipped using USPS Priority Express which reaches most local post offices overnight. Your birds must be picked up from the local Post Office as quickly as possible to ensure your new babies are safe. Shipping is additional and generally ranges from $25 to $75 depending on where you live and how many chicks you order. We're currently only shipping within the continental United States.
Our Live Chick Guarantee only applies if you order 6 or more chicks. This is because we believe that 6 chicks is the ideal number of bodies to keep the little guys safe. (Enough fluff for padding and enough bodies for heat). An explanation of this guarantee as well as answers to all of the most frequently asked questions can be found at this link: Frequently Asked Questions
We know you'll LOVE your baby Quail! :)
